MythTV users to regain TV guide info -- for a price

The free electronic program guide (EPG) data that Zap2it Labs currently provides to many MythTV users is scheduled to shut down on September 1. Today MythTV users learned how much a replacement service offered by Schedules Direct (SD) will cost.

A three-month, non-recurring service plan will cost $15. After that, users will be able to pay for a month-to-month service plan whose price has not yet been determined, and will depend on the number of subscribers. SD guide service will cover the United States and Canada only.
