Toolbar TV

CNET Editors' review

This add-on could easily become a TV lover's best friend, although a Favorites listing would eliminate having to weed through the multitude of stations given.

You won't actually be watching television shows with Toolbar TV, but you'll have instant access to popular video segments from several national stations. Links to some of the latest videos from Google, YouTube, Metacafe and others--covering sports, music, news and entertainment--load and play in no time. Although the updates are not in real time, the number of popular networks covered, such as CNN, ESPN and several international networks, is impressive.

Advantageous trappings--like the e-mail notifier for Hotmail, Gmail, Yahoo, and POP3 accounts, plus the weather forecaster and pop-up blocker--are standard for add-ons like this one, though they are still great to see. We appreciate determining which buttons rest on the bar at any given time. However, since not every topic and station will interest you, we wish the menus on each button were configurable. You might not get much work done with this free toolbar, but you'll be well-informed.

    "Crashed My Browser"

    May 1, 2011  |   By Rubicon1954

    Version: Toolbar TV 4.5.133

    Pros

    Easy to UNINSTALL.

    Cons

    Completely incompatible with Internet Explorer.

    Summary

    I couldn't use this add on at all because after installing it, my browser froze and became unusable. I couldn't even access the toolbar to see what it does, since everything on Internet Explorer was nonfunctional and unresponsive. I uninstalled it by going to the "uninstall programs" feature of my computer's control panel, and after this nastly little program was gone, everything was OK again. The only thing good I can say is that it was relatively easy to uninstall and there doesn't seem to be any permanent damage.

    "The Best Free internet TV site"

    December 11, 2007  |   By welyweah

    Version: Toolbar TV 4.5.133

    Pros

    CNET

    There are a lot of new internet TV sites out there. most of them offer a free trial or preview and then they make you pay to sign up, or are cluttered with ads. I think that is ridiculous... so ive done my research and have found a couple of really decent sites. The first one Id like to draw your attention to is (viewmy.tv) This site has almost 1300 channels from around the globe and counting. it is free to register and they dont ask for stupid details, just your username and email address. It actually streams live channels so you dont have to download any and they have a pretty easy way of finding the channel you want. You can search through genre, country, region or name of the channel. oh and there are no ads either. Check this one out. With over 1300 channels from hundreds of countries, loads of features like channel rating, user recommendations, live chat, profile pages and much much more.
