TV-Browser is a digital TV guide.

TV-Browser gets the daily TV program from the Internet and shows it clearly aranged - like a printed TV guide. An Internet connection is only necessary during the data update.

Note:You can not use TV-Browser to watch TV.

Your favorite channel is probably already supported.

We don't have any commercial background. We just like to work at this project - in our spare time.

We really don't want to earn money from the project.

TV-Browser contains no evil code like spyware, more...

What's New

Version 3.0.2-beta1:
  • TV-Browser 3.0.2 is shipped without the most plugins, you will find them in a plugin package that can be easily installed with Drag'n'Drop in the program table.
  • The TV-Browser data plugin was renamed to EPGfree data to separate it from TV-Browser itself.
  • TV-Browser 3.0.2 contains some new features like the new filter dialog and some bug fixes.
  • This is a beta version, so it probably contains bugs.


  • Mac OS X 10.4 or later
  • Java 1.5 or later

For easy handling of the Personas the Plugin PersonaHandler is available for installation through TV-Browser. TV-Browser 3.1RC1 is a release candidate and probably contains bugs. A Java JRE since version 6 is needed.

Beta will not run in Lion. Useless for US TV, by the way. If you're on this side of the Atlantic, don't bother with this. TitanTV.com if you're still watching TV at all.

This is great - it displays all my chosen channels on my desktop. It's like a printed TV guide on my Mac. A good job by the developers. It does not have an Apple UI so it is a bit of a change to use but its easy ... Check their list to see if it will work in your country. The biggest plus - its free; so thanks.

The US Broadcast Channels are still not supported. Neither is Canada. It would be real nice if the developer would list the major countries that are sternly supported in the description so a user would not have to download and install the program to find out.

This does'nt run on Mac OSX 10.4.11
It says that it neds a later version of Java installed
even though I have all the Java updates for Tiger installed.
Ergo it's 10.5 or later to run this version.

The latest version of MacProgramGuide crashes on my 2006 iMac. I have alerted the developer. In the interim I guess I'm stuck with TV-Browser. I hope it's not for very long

Where MacProgramGuide offers a clean, uncluttered interface, TV-Browser throws everything at you at once.

Where MacProgramGuide makes it easy to enter your SchedulesDirect account information, TV-Browser first downloads about every known European channel, and then you have yo search the cluttered preferences settings to find SchedulesDirect. Then you have to figure out how to actually view that data.

TV-Browser offers a little more control over filter settings, but some of my old MacProgramGuide filters are impossible to recreate.

If you live in the US, wait until a newer version of MacProgramGuide is released. Or maybe the current version will work for you. I'm just out of luck for now.

To the little Einsteins MIKEC3K and AESCHYLUS - and others, I'm sure - not only is this program Open Source, but it's written in Java, so it runs on absolutely everything (including Mac, Windows, Linux and more). It's a really great concept. If you want US channels, make sure to contribute. Details are on their website. It's not that hard, MIKEC3K, being a developer and all... although after hitting your site, I'm using that term loosely. A LOLCATS app, MIKEC3K, really? 4chan much? Maybe on your 15th birthday someone will explain the concept of contributing to worthwile causes...

btw - in Europe (you know - outside the US of A) this program has 5 stars. It works really well. Many many thanks to the developers. TV-Browser and ProjectX are my favorite Java apps - they just work, and they're platform independent.

If you don't have a clue about something, be sure to vote anyways.
1 star. USA! That should do it.
Gotta go, I think my sarcasm detector just exploded.
