That's a sample DataDirect file.  For a sample XMLTV file, check out the 
info at xmltv.org.  If nothing else, you can install XMLTV and download 
a file using any grabber--even though it's not for your local channels.  
That's the nice thing about the World Wide Web's being 
"world-wide"--even from China you could download listings for the UK  
It's probably easiest to download with non-US grabbers (so you don't 
need to create a DataDirect account).
