Somebody else recommended digiguide, so I contacted them. I didn't have much

Are you able (or would you be able to) provide UK TV Listings in XMLTV format

I would be prepared to pay for such a service.

I'm not asking you to give anything away. Please don't give me canned answer 
that doesn't actually fit my question. Thanks
