The EchoStar 922's contribution to CES 2009 is the omission of traditional number keys from its remote control. Instead of pressing the number buttons to change the channel, you'll use a laptop-like touch pad to navigate to your channel selection on the screen.

The revolutionary user interface on the EchoStar 922 utilizes movie poster graphics, widget-based menus, tiles, and cursor-like navigation, according to CNN. The EchoStar 922's menu can also display RSS feeds for constant updates on stock quotes, sports scores, weather reports, and news headlines.
