Earlier this year Zap2It Labs
revealed they would be discontinuing their free XML schedule service that allowed United States users to get their local TV listings for free. These free listings are ending in September and led many to fear how they would be getting their listings for MythTV.
Easy TV Data
sprouted up as a non-profit organization headed by several open-source TV applications. Easy TV Data was later renamed to Schedules Direct, and we now have new details on whats happening. Beginning next month you will be able to get your listings through Schedules Direct, but it will cost you $15 every three months ($5.00 USD per month). Though this non-profit organization is working to lower the price down to $20 per year. Additional information is available at Schedules Direct
