If you already have a toolbar or two, you won't find any new features here. TVPC HD Toolbar installs smoothly, and you can customize the features displayed.
This toolbar's claim to fame is offering you access to online TV, but it doesn't really provide the TV shows so much as show you where to find them. The Channel List function opens a Web page listing links to TV feeds from around the world. The Download HD files just led to another page of files. A function to broadcast your own station leads to, you guessed it, another Web page to create an account and download software. Finally, the function to download free movies surprises no one by opening another Web page of public domain film links. The films stream in the now common small-size interface with very basic play, pause, and volume controls.
Irritatingly, all the TV options of this toolbar open in new windows. After running through this toolbar once we merely saved the links as favorites and deleted the bar. Anyone can use it, but few will really feel compelled to keep it.
The TVPC HD Toolbar includes everything you want from a toolbar, plus some new and exciting additions including creating your own TV station. In addition to pop-up blockers, Google search and browser cache cleaner, a cookie cleaner, and a history cleaner, the TVPC HD Toolbar includes; Access to HD downloads and live HD feeds (beta). RSS news feeds you control. Weather forecasts, both local and national. A built in radio where you can choose from thousands of stations worldwide. Live TV feeds in the toolbar which you can click to make full screen.
Access to hundreds of worldwide live TV stations with no fees. Also get notified when you receive new e-mails to your POP3, Yahoo, Gmail, or Hotmail accounts.
Version 4.5 may include unspecified updates, enhancements, or bug fixes.
