OK, I figured it now after a 'debug' run. The new script is not as nice
as the original, it does not handle wrong case, e.g. 'PRIME' is bad but
'Prime' works.

I also find that the channel names do not follow the column titles
any more - this may be a change on the web or in the way the script
works. The above list worked for me with the old script but the list
below is needed now:

$channels = {
        'ABC2' => 'abc2.abc.gov.au',
        'ABC' => 'act.abc.gov.au',
        'Prime' => 'southern.prime.com.au',
        'SBS News' => 'news.sbs.com.au',
        'SBS' => 'eastern.sbs.com.au',
        'TEN' => 'capital.southerncrossten.com.au',
        'WIN' => 'nsw.win.com.au'
