API20141201: New fields - "entityType" and "officialURL"

Post by rkulagow » Thu Oct 08, 2015 12:27 pm

The following fields have been added to the JSON for a program:

"entityType": Mandatory.
One of: Show, Episode, Sports, Movie

This is now required because not all Sport events will be tagged with a dedicated "SP" programID. If your application performs EPG shading / colorization or searches for events based on the first two characters of the programID it will need to take the entityType into consideration.

"officialURL": Optional
If present, will contain the official URL for a program.

The documentation for the program response in the Wiki has been updated.
