Data Direct is alive and well.  In fact, that's exactly what Schedules
Direct will be using (trust me, only accidental similarity in the name
-- TMS had more trouble with Easy TV Data because of a similar trademark
they own).

Zap2it Labs went away because TMS decided that it was too much effort to
police it for fraud.  Just about everyone we've worked with at TMS and
Labs said that they felt bad about the free service going away.
