There are five grabbers available for Britain and Ireland.

Notes on UK/ROI Radio Times listings

The tv_grab_uk_rt grabber processes machine-readable data from the radiotimes.com site. All data is the copyright of the Radio Times, and its use is subject to the following terms of use:

"In accessing this XML feed, you agree that you will only access its contents for your own personal and non-commercial use and not for any commercial or other purposes, including advertising or selling any goods or services, including any third-party software applications available to the general public."


On 12 Dec 2011, the Radio Times outsourced the data feed to MetaBroadcast who now provide the service from their Atlas installation. The service continues as before except that film ratings and the Radio Times Choices are not available on the new platform.

Subsequent to the transfer to MetaBroadcast no new channels will be added to the Radio Times feed except in exceptional circumstances (e.g. "4Seven").

Atlas

The Radio Times feed is now provided by MetaBroadcast from their Atlas installation. The Atlas software itself is available as open source, so you can extend it or host your own instance. You can get a free Atlas API key at http://atlas.metabroadcast.com/

A new grabber (tv_grab_uk_atlas) uses this API to access the Atlas data directly, and has all UK channels. To use it you must first get an Atlas API key.
