Schedules Direct Membership Levels

Though we know that many of you would happily send us money just to support your favorite applications, we also provide a membership benefit that we hope will make those applications a little more pleasurable to use. To this end, Schedules Direct members receive access to television program guide listings for use in the Open Source and Freeware applications listed on our Approved Applications page. The data is licensed from Tribune Media Services, but we hope to eventually expand that to include other sources, including information supplied directly by our membership community. It is our hope that helping make our supported applications easier and more enjoyable to use will lead to wider adoption and interest in Open Source and Freeware media applications, as well as participation in the free software community as a whole.

All memberships come with a 7 day free trial, and renewal dates are calculated from either your membership/trial expiration date or the date of payment, whichever is later. This way, you won't lose out on your trial if you subscribe before its over, and we won't penalize you for letting your membership lapse for awhile before renewing.

The data feed is licensed from Tribune Media Services via Zap2it.com for the sole use of our members with our Approved Applications. Please respect the license terms and our Subscriber Agreement.

Please note that the data feed provided with your membership consists of raw XML. You'll want to use one of the applications on the "Approved Applications" list. That may even be how you got here in the first place!
