In the US I'm talking about SchedulesDirect. According to the agreement
I signed when I subscribed to them, I do not think I am allowed to sell
a machine with a subscription already set up. A Myth machine without
listings data is just a fancy media player.

Things like that are what led to Tribune Media ceasing to make the data
available for free to "hobbyists", and led to the founding of SD, I believe.
