Get Your Local TV Listings From The Bash Command Line

[ Thanks to Mike Golvach for this link. ]

"This script gets its content from TV Listings At Zap2It.com and accepts a maximum of two arguments. The US Zip Code is a required argument (we haven't checked to see if this works for overseas, but we highly doubt it, at this point) and you can also pass the script a "nohd" argument so that you only get standard TV listings returned. The default action, for this script, is to return all local television results (including HD Channels) for the current time period (Once we crack the dynamic object code, we'll definitely post an updated version of this script that will allow you to pick different "begin times" and also increase the time period your output can include)."
