I saw a thread about that on the MythTV list. They're hashing out a way
to find a replacement service *OR* possibly working something out with
Zap2it. The rumor to the reason why Zap2it is shutting down their
service is because too many commercial companies (outside of Myth) were
using it to feed data to their products.

They'll definitely come up with an alternative before September. My only
concern is that they come up with a decent solution instead of just
scraping for listings because we all know how unreliable and a PITA it
is when they go and change the format.
