A while back, we covered MyTVrss, which is a web service for keeping track of your favorite TV Shows. Recently, we came across a similar, yet more comprehensive, desktop application, known as TV-Browser. It enables users to obtain TV channels’ schedules from its online database, including BBC World, ESPN, Cartoon Network, ANIMAX, AXN, Sky Sports and more. You can add programs to favorites (from TV Channel schedules), and install plugins for acquiring program details, reminders and the like. Moreover, it is a cross-platform application, and therefore is compatible with Mac- and Linux-based OS.
The installation wizard lets you easily configure preferences for adding channels to custom schedule list, as well as additional plugins for enhancing TV-Browser functionality.
The main interface displays the specified channel’s schedule for a selected date in left sidebar, while other channels are displayed in the list underneath the calendar.
To add/remove channels from the list, head over to TV listings –> Add/Remove channels. This will take you to the Channels section within application Options. Other preferences can be used to configure time zone settings (for receiving updates according to your time zone). It also lets you change the position of items on the main interface, adjust graphical settings, manage plugins and add/remove context menu options.
TV-Browser is an open source application that works on Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Mac OS X and Linux.
