Might be best for you, but certainly not for me - here in Australia,
the broadcasters NEVER update Now/Next data to correct for overruns,
because the commerical channels intentionally overrun every single
prime-time program by somewhere between 10 and 25 minute, depending on
how they feel at the time.

(And they don't broadcast subtitles, or consistent progID's, or
anything which might make EIT data useful as anything more than the
barest indication of what's on tomorrow)
