The script scrapes the Yahoo TV web site and converts the results into an RSS feed. You can set the station, channel, and duration in the future.

Additionally, I’ve set up the script, publically, so that anyone can use it. It can be found a the URL below. The configurable options are:

  • s=STATION_ID – This is provided by Yahoo, it will look something like this: us_NY31666d.
  • c=CHANNEL_ID – This is also provided by Yahoo, and will look something like this: us_COMEDY
  • d=DURATION – This is how far in the future you would like the feed to grab, in hours. Defaults to 1.
