A TV programming guide on your desktop
Dinner Is Served
The Java-based TV-Browser software provides a wealth of features that help you organize your evening television viewing.
Printed TV guides have several inherent flaws: First, they fail to detect changes in the program after printing, and second, they only provide information for a limited number of channels. Moreover, the information is limited to what the publisher chooses to print.
The remedy is an electronic TV guide, such as TV-Browser. On request, it lists the programs of more than 1,000 (mostly German and European) television and radio stations in a clearly formatted form and reacts promptly to any changes. Schedules Direct  supplies EPG data for North America, sourced from Tribune Media Services. They offer a seven-day free trial, with fee schedules of US$ 25 for a one-year membership or US$ 6 for a two-month membership.
The software comes with a variety of other functions, such as the ability to categorize or a reminder feature for upcoming broadcasts. An API ensures the smooth integration of additional plugins for advanced features.
