This is already being done and has been for some time by the OzTiVo
guys at http://www.tvguide.org.au. This is an excellent source and
uses a creative commons licence and is not subject to web site
obfuscations, legal issues etc. The only reason why I don't use it as
a primary source is that it often doesn't/didn't have 7 full days
worth of data. But check it out - the data is excellent and is
contributed by the user community.
