I'm genuinely surprised that anyone would be interested in checking out a TV guide, let alone configuring schedule reminder schemes with notifications for personalities and programs. But that's what TV-Browser is.
To create your very own cheap paper TV guide, you will need to select some channels for TV-Browser to follow. Each channel's schedule will be shown as a column, with programs featuring a description and format information icons. I swear, it reminds me of the noughties, when all my entertainment was provided by talmudvision.
The vast majority of features come in the form of plugins, the most useful of which are already present in the regular TV-Browser installer. Although weird, having plugins for features is actually not a bad idea. If you don't like a feature, you don't need to have it. For example, you have a plugin for showing program details, one for the search function, one for downloading the TV schedules, one to save favorites, and so on.
Speaking of which, you can further personalize your guide by selecting your favorite programs, which will appear highlighted on the program table.
Double-clicking on a program will open its details window. From there you can set up reminders and navigate through the schedule in detail.
TV-Browser doesn't require a permanent connection to the Internet. You just press F5 when you want to update the TV listings and check the news, which is also supplied by the same services.
- Downloads and presents TV listings with details
- Can access hundreds of TV channels (mostly European, specifically German)
- Downloads TV News
- Allows you the set and track favorite programs and TV personalities
- Customizable Program table with custom font size and custom colors for favorite programs
- Search function
- Various plug-ins
Speaking for myself, I find TV to be the vilest form disinformation and social conditioning. But hey, if you're so desperate for entertainment and 'news,' I guess that using TV-Browser is considerably better than buying a weekly TV magazine, which often ends up next to the toilet bowl. Cheers!
