Flip Matrix

A flip matrix is the sequence of chan­nel num­bers used to cycle through in a ses­sion of chan­nel surf­ing on some broad­cast media.


Some ses­sions of chan­nel surf­ing (or “chan­nel hop­ping”) have their own unique flip matri­ces. Usu­al­ly a habit­u­al zap­per has a seed of chan­nels with which he starts the matrix at the begin­ning of every surf ses­sion. The chan­nels used in the seed vari­ates on inter­est and mood, and is soon adjust­ed by the feed­back giv­en to the surfer from the tv screen.
