TV Toolbar is an add-on for Internet Explorer that provides links to legitimate, high-quality TV shows, movies, and more. Although the toolbar doesn't give you access to anything you couldn't find yourself, having the links in one well-organized place is an advantage.
The toolbar's interface is attractive and integrates well with Internet Explorer. Mouseover tooltips explain each of the icons representing the toolbar's major features. Users can select from lists of television channels, shows, and movies, and the toolbar will link to legitimate content hosted on the networks' Web sites or on sites like Hulu. You won't find low-quality, pirated content here, which may or may not be a good thing, depending on what you're into. The toolbar also contains links to plenty of other types of online resources, including social-networking sites, medical information, shopping links, weather, and more. There's even an Internet radio player with a variety of stations. The toolbar's online Help file is well written and thorough, and we enjoyed having quality, functional links to so much online entertainment all in one place. Users who don't have cable or just want to watch TV on the go will find this a very enjoyable gadget, and parents will appreciate the fact that the toolbar doesn't provide links to content that's inappropriate for kids.
TV Toolbar is free to download and use, and it installs and uninstalls without issues. Overall, we found it to be a handy IE add-on, and we recommend it to all TV lovers.
