A TV programming guide on your desktop

Conclusions

The developers of TV-Browser have packed every conceivable type of function into their digital TV guide. Although this makes the software incredibly versatile and flexible, it is often at the expense of clarity.

Nevertheless, TV-Browser does a great job and outperforms any analog television magazine by far in terms of information content. Last but not least, the hundreds of available extensions hugely facilitate searching for the right program. To close on a positive note, I didn't experience any technical issues throughout the test on our lab computers.
