xmltv can be used to download channel information from various
internet providers and mythtv can import the xmltv data format.

xmltv has a tv_grab_nl flavour (look it up on Google).  You'd need to
hear from someone in your country to find out if it covers the
channels you need.

tv_grab_uk_rt works very well for the UK (although it doesn't cover
every cable/satellite lineup) so I suspect you'll be fine.
