Free TV listings for all
Broadcasting Data Services and the British Broadcasting industry.
More Info at:
By releasing television schedule details into the public domain many web sites will be able to integrate this information into their content, creating a tighter convergence between the web and television which will benefit advertisers, broadcasters, webmasters and importantly, the viewing/surfing/consuming public.
Currently anyone publishing TV listings in the UK is required by law under the 1990 Broadcasting Act to pay a royalty to the relevant broadcasters. BDS collects this royalty for the broadcasters (BBC, ITVA and Channel 4). More information regarding BDS can be found here, http://www.bds.tv/
