TV Browser is a free TV program guide, which gathers the listings from the web and arranges them for you on screen. You can configure how the free TV guide displays these listings and which channels it gathers the information from. Altogether, this free TV program guide provides a useful way to see what is on TV at a glance, provided that you have an internet connection.
Here are some of the features of this Free TV Program Guide:
- Gathers listing information from the internet.
- Clearly arranged to be similar to a magazine or newspaper TV guide.
- Supports more than 500 different channels.
- Completely free.
- Contains no advertisements.
- Open source.
- Platform independent, so it works on every single operating system.
- Highly customizable.
See What Is On TV, At a Glance
The main strength of this free TV program guide is that it offers you the ability to customize the appearance of what you see on screen and what channels you receive listings for. Using their simple settings dialog, it is possible to heavily customize the interface to suit you. This is a useful feature that many of the other free TV program guide computer programs cannot attest to having.
As well as this, the sheer amount of channels it supports helps to set it apart. It incorporates channels from a variety of countries so that anyone using the software is likely to find at least some of their favorite channels when they have a look.
As a free TV program guide, TV Browser is a decent bit of software. However, it is undeniable that a large number of services which provide free TV listings are available all over the internet, using sites like OnTheBox.com and TVGuide.co.uk. Neither of these websites requires users to download software or even sign up to view the listings for a lot of channels.
This means that, whilst it is a fairly decent free TV program guide, TV Browser is largely obsolete.
