Foxtel has finally delivered on something many of its viewers have been wanting for a long time; a dedicated TV Guide with advanced search abilities, remote recording and more from the ease of their Windows Desktop.

The new piece of software was launched this week and is designed to sit neatly on your desktop as a Windows Gadget. Microsoft played a role in helping with the development and in keeping things simple. At the same time, it has a host of useful features not only limited to keyword searching, but also with the ability to view program summaries, create a separate list of your favourite channels and if you're an IQ or IQ2 subscriber, you can also use it so set Reminders and even Remote Record programs up to 14 days in advance (particularly handy if you're away from home/on vacation etc.).

 

If you don't like the idea of it taking up space on your spotless desktop, you can also download the new Foxtel TV Guide Gadget as a 'Web Slice' through MS's IE8 web browser. It then sits on your Favourites bar and lets you keep track of that 'slice' at any time with ease.
