TV-Browser is an advanced Windows TV guide that downloads information from the Internet and displays it in a well-organized interface.
It has a great amount of features, and you can only discover them all as you use the program.
Once installation comes to an end, you need to adjust the main settings of the application, including network options, plugins and TV channels to check.
Still, all these configuration options can be easily accessed from the settings menu at a later time, but the wizard is especially useful to rookies who can thus get assistance on the main preferences.
The main window shows the TV schedule for all selected channels and a simple double-click on one of the entries launches a dedicated screen with information such as program genre, description, production year, website, duration, start and end time.
You can update the program not only for the current day, but also for tomorrow, with options allowing a download for up to the next 3 weeks. Automatic update can also be enabled, again from the settings screen.
One of the most important things when it comes to such a program is the number of supported channels which, in our case, isn't quite impressive. Unfortunately, TV-Browser supports just a limited number of countries, such as the US, Germany, France, Italy or Spain. It does support plugins on the other hand, so you can add new features by installing separate add-ons.
The configuration screen is a must check because it comprises tons of options regarding not only the plugins, but also the Tray icon, the interface and mouse clicks.
We didn't notice a major computer slowdown while using TV-Browser, but an Internet connection is needed to download TV channel information.
Overall, TV-Browser is a handy piece of software, but it definitely needs support for a wider array of channels and countries. Otherwise, it works like a charm on all Windows versions and doesn't hamper system performance.
