Sky exposing EPG data in a Web Service

Using JSON. Check out these links:

http://www.sky.com/portletepg/TVList...=1680&detail=2

http://www.sky.com/portletepg/TVList...&eventId=23821

Should be enough to understand the basics of the API... not sure if there's sufficient information on series though to make it worth writing a new EPG integration.

(Incidentally, why do so many EPG integrations rely on the XMLTV plugin? If the data is available dynamically, it makes more sense just to request it in a new EPG plugin rather than to pull it down, format it as an XML file and then use the XMLTV file to read it in. Java's easy for doing that sort of stuff.)

The idea of xmltv is that each epg programme only needs to support one listings format and one new piece of grabber software can then be written for each new guide source and all programs that support xmltv can automatically use the new source with no code changes. This should mean less work for everyone and more epg sources being available more quickly

The potal appears to have been closed. I don't get anything back on the attached links. How did you find out about it Mahoney?

Oh, yes. I see it now.

I wonder who is picking this up? Has anyone pointed this out to DigiGuide?

I full listing for all Sky channels would be very good.

Actually, a better guy to tell would be Alan Birtle. I'll drop him a line.

I imagine its just the source for their ajax epg. i dont think its worth developing a grabber for it as if a lot of people start using it sky willl just block it or alter it to stop it working

I made a grabber for this 2 weeks ago in php and documented how to read the json provided. The data available is quite good and is the most complete channel wise for sky that I have found...

Here is an updated version with channel filtering:

Have a look at readme.txt to find out how to set it up.

How are people getting on with this? Is it worth a look? I've had a quick look through it and there doesn't seem to be any HD tags or first run tags, is this correct?

Thanks

Whitey
