You may not want to miss the favorite TV shows, in order to watch them on time you will need to setup reminders. QTV is a platform independent application which reminds users when new episodes of their favorite shows are aired. The dates come from http://next-episode.net which make them very reliable and up-to-date.
Additionally QTV shows all new episodes of the day at the users wish and links every listed episode in the application to the Torrent search engine, from where you can directly download these shows and see them on media center or in any other media player.
This tool works on windows and linux, this is how it will show notifications as shown in the image below.
