Absolutely I would pay for a commercial quality EPG in Australia, just not
the $100/Year IceTV charges :) I guess I'd be happy with $20 - $30 / Year

I'm surprised SD is considering it, I would have thought it was a legal
minefield in Oz.

BTW, I currently use the free web scraper Shepherd
(http://svn.whuffy.com/index.cgi/wiki) and find it pretty good.
