Create International Lineups??

Post by Yatta » Sat Nov 03, 2007 3:40 pm

How can I go about creating a lineup for Jamaica? For my particular cable company?
Could someone be so kind as to point me in the right direction to get this done; I've been wanting to do this for some time but to no avail.

Yes, no one can help you. With a few special cases, we only provide data for the US and Canada.

You may want with your local newspaper.. see who provides the data to them. I don't know if you have programming skills, but someone could write an interface to output XMLTV format so you can use it with lots of apps.

even though ALL our data, TV Channel, comes from the US there is no way i can do this? I think it is possible since I see a few ppl have created listing for other parishes (citys) in Jamaica.

I see a few listing for my neighboring areas...

Yes, that's pretty much the case. We're looking into hosting the data ourselves in which case custom lineups *would* be a possibility. For now, I would pick a zip code.. maybe Miami and get listings from there.
