Well, at least if you are using the premier
xmltv sdjson grabber (tv_grab_zz_sdjson_sqlite).

If you are using the other xmltv sdjson
grabber (tv_grab_zz_sdjson) it does not properly
follow the redirects of the new endpoint(*).

A PR has been created upstream in the XMLTV
project with a proposed fix.  You can manually
update your version of that grabber with the
proposed fix (and provide feedback to that
project if it works for you), wait for a new
XMLTV release with either that, or some other,
fix, or convert to the tv_grab_zz_sdjson_sqlite

(*) I do not know if the developer of that
grabber tested with the new endpoint,
or because of specific test scenarios they
did not run into the problem.
