BBC iplayer blows up TV listing feeds - Radio survives for now

categories: [ Announcements ]

As the BBC marches ever onwards toward launching their new Nitro API they are slowly but surely shutting down the various feeds used by apps like get_iplayer to obtain relevant programme listings.

Today, the BBC has shut down the feeds currently being used by get_iplayer to obtain TV listings meaning users will now see multiple WARNING: Failed to get programme index feed warnings whilst attempting to update their TV Cache.


The good news is there is a workaround for this issue that you can implement immediately (thanks to the hard work of get_iplayer maintainer dinkypumpkin).

A new version of get_iplayer is due to be released shortly that will enact this workaround more permanently - again thanks to the work of dinkypumpkin.
