6's Keen TV Listings Scanner

6's Keen TV Listings Scanner is a program that accepts a list of your favourite TV shows, movies, actors, and actresses, and running from crontab, performs a daily search for them in's TV listings search engine, and emails you a summary of the results. You get a daily email listing 15-20 programs that you'd probably like to watch, and, of course, lets you exclude channels that you cannot access.
