Welcome to the Australian Community-driven TV Guide. The Guide was created so that personal video recorders (PVRs) in Australia can obtain electronic program guide (EPG) data. Currently, the TV Guide provides data in XMLTV format and in OzTiVo slice format.

The data is freely available under a Creative Commons Creative Commons License Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike 2.5 Australia License. You should not be paying to receive this data, but we do appreciate donations (using the button at left). Donations are used purely to offset the costs of hosting and bandwidth.

The Guide relies on a community of volunteers to create and upload guide data to the Guide's database, and to clean and edit the data via a web interface. We would very much appreciate your help to keep the Guide going. Please see the How To Help Us page for details.
