        Yahoo's TOS (Section 18) says:

It seems like these listings are meant to be accessed through the
"Yahoo! Go" for TV software only.  Also, it's clear that the source
of these listings is Tribune Media Services (uses the same provider,
series, and program IDs) and I doubt TMS would allow Yahoo to
redistribute these listings to just anybody.  But IANAL, so maybe you
should consult a real one.
