Editors' Review


We remember when checking the television listings was a matter of looking in the newspaper or picking up the latest issue of TV Guide with the week's groceries. Times have changed, and now people turn to their computers to see what's on TV. TV-Browser is one such option for this information, at least in theory; the program promises to provide up-to-date TV listings, but we found it to be severely lacking, especially for U.S. users.

TV-Browser starts with a setup wizard, allowing users to select their country and then choose the channels they want to include. There are 11 countries to choose from, all of which are European with the exception of the U.S. and Australia. The selection of channels for most of these countries looks pretty comprehensive, but the only ones that are listed for the U.S. are American Forces Network channels. Other channels can be added manually, but there's really no point, when there are so many other, easier ways to get TV listings. Users in countries other than the U.S. will find that TV-Browser has adequate listings and is fairly easy to navigate; although the way the listings are displayed is a little cluttered and hard to look at. The program's online Help wiki is well-written and thorough. Overall, TV-Browser isn't a bad choice for users in select countries, but there are definitely better options for U.S. users.

TV-Browser is free. It installs politely but leaves a folder and Start menu item behind upon removal. We recommend this program with reservations.

"Excellent, for UK programs at least"

January 03, 2011  |  By Captain_Fred

 |  Version: TV-Browser 2.7.6


Easy to read daily table of programs, tree breakdown by several dozen categories (films, drama, etc), auto retrieval of IMDB ratings


IMDB link didnt work for me (so far, 2 hours' use); IMDB rating (only) retrieval plugin seems to only work when there's a unique (in IMDB) movie name


I highly recommend this program for UK and probably all non-US viewers - the editors review downgrades the performance with US channels.

"Absolute rubbish"

May 11, 2010  |  By aggletonm

 |  Version: TV-Browser 2.7.5


Absolutely none


Lack of channels - and I'm in Europe which the review says is catered for.


I'm in the UK and there is one channel available (BBC World) which isn't even broadcast in the UK.

"Good Product"

February 09, 2009  |  By KingGalbatorix

 |  Version: TV-Browser 2.7.2


TvBrowser is easy to set up and works flawlessly. The functionality can be improved with plugins.


The design is some kind of old-fashioned. But this is triviality more or less because it simply serves its purpose.
