The New York Post and Post Digital Network launched Decider.com Monday, a new website devoted to help the “on-demand generation” figure out what to watch.

The stand-alone site intends to use a “unique blend of pop culture expertise, irreverent insight, and great recommendations” to guide users to movies and TV shows they might be interested in streaming or downloading.

“The way entertainment content is being created and consumed has changed fundamentally in the last few years,” Jesse Angelo, CEO of the New York Post said in a news release. “We see a real opportunity for Decider to become a great destination for time-challenged consumers who are having a hard time discerning what to watch.”

The website — staffed by real, live humans — seems to be billed as an alternative to sites that might set users up with content based on algorithms.

“It’s very easy to get overwhelmed by the amount of streaming options available,” explains Decider.com’s editor-in-chief Mark Graham, “which is why Decider will help people find great, conversation-worthy entertainment.”

“Our site is meant to turn you on to things that an algorithm might never guess you’d like with a staff of writers who are all funny, smart and more than a little obsessed with TV and movies.”
