Major Service Change coming to Schedules Direct

We have been informed that our data source: Gracenote (formerly Tribune Media Services) will be ending the guide data service currently used by most SD members. Their plan is to end support for this service on November 1, 2014.

Thankfully there is no need to panic, as Schedules Direct was already hard at work implementing a more modern JSON-based service using newer/better data feeds from TMS, as well as a service similar to the current method.

If you are an application developer, please come up with a plan for your users. If you are an end user, please be give your developers time to develop a plan.
