Welcome to Schedules Direct
Schedules Direct is a non-profit organization whose mission is to educate the
public about the benefits of Open Source Software and other free software,
provide support functions for such software, and provide funding for research
that facilitates the improvement or creation of Open Source Software and other
free software for the benefit of the public at large.
The cost of membership is currently US$25/year, with a 7 day free trial.
A 2 month membership is also available for US$6 for those who do not wish to
commit to an entire year.
Your membership fees help us fund programs to help your favorite Open Source
projects. In exchange, our members receive access to raw U.S./Canadian TV
listing data for the Free and Open Source Applications they use. Those
applications then use the data to provide things like PVR functionality,
search tools, and private channel grids. For more information, please read
about our membership benefits
and what your money helps us do for the Open Source community on our

SD-JSON images now require tokens
Effective 2022-10-01, the Schedules Direct service will be requiring that the user token be presented for most interaction with our servers. If you are running NextPVR v6 or EPG123 v22.214.171.124 or higher then this will re-enable image downloads.
If you are a developer, please check the updated API documentation. You may also contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to have your requests steered to a “debug” server while you are testing the addition of the token to your code.
