Sure.  That's a great idea.  Anyone in the US who wants the data to be
free should just change over their video sources to "EIT only" video
sources and start to use the EIT data.

That will cause a /lot/ of people who are now complaining about paying
to go out and sign up for--and pay for--Schedules Direct.  (Start using
EIT only and you'll know why.)
