Editors' Review

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.

    "Eh, I'm not impressed"

    January 04, 2010   |   By Mark*

    Version: TV Toolbar 2.4

    Pros

    The ability to view TV and movies from a browser toolbar. Funded by ads so you don't have to pay for it.

    Cons

    It's a toolbar bloated with Craplets. (Such as weather, e-mail notifier and games to name a few.) Many channels don't really work. The chat box that is displayed next to the viewer often contains links to porn sites and abusive language.

    Summary

    A great idea ruined by "extras" no one would want on their computers. If you decide to download this toolbar make sure you have a good Anti-Virus program installed beforehand. Wasted potential if you ask me. Clean it up.

    Updated on Jan 4, 2010

    After further review I discovered I had a second TV toolbar install it's self over this one. So my review wasn't exactly fair. While I don't like many of the extra add ons for this toolbar my comments about the chat box were directed at the second toolbar. As such I would like to upgrade my review to 4 stars. This toolbar is convenient and all of the links work as promised. My apologies to all for the embarrassing mistake.
