EPGs: Service Information
There are some APIs that are only useful for non-service bound applications (e.g. Electronic Program Guides)
- i.e. the application is signalled on all services.
Access to broadcast service information
- DVB-SI API - org.dvb.si
- Gives access to all the low level detail of DVB-SI for those who know how to use that.
- JavaTV SI API - javax.tv.service, javax.tv.service.guide
- A high level abstract view
Beware: many broadcast networks don't follow the DVB-SI specification very well or very completely.
