I want to write a program that accesses a TV database somewhere out there in internet land. Don't know how to do it but that is the easiest problem to overcome.


The real problem is finding a free database. And if not free then one for an a small annual fee. So has this been done by an individual? Does someone know of any database and who to talk to to access it?

I got access to Zap2it when I bought TVLobby which is part of the Cinemar MainLobby suite. I am not sure if there is free access without buying some product like I did, but you might want to check it out.



Good luck.

Sign up for Zap2it Labs DataDirect and go to the Forums. You will find the information you need there that will allow you to write an app that will allow you to query their guide database at get up to 13 days of program information.


Access to the guide data is free for non-commercial use. (well at least currently it is)

The "code" required when signing up should be easy to find by searching the Internet.
