    Anybody know of guide that has a grid view of tv schedules for palm?

    I came across TV Guide: Mobile Edition:

    http://tvguide.handmark.com/

    Has anyone used this. It costs $29.95 a yr and only show it's available for the 600, but I assume it owrks on the 700p. To bad they don't included this with Handmark Express which I pay $6.99 a yr.

    Surely, there is a free/internet based tv grid somewhere that works on a mobile phone.

    Hmmmm the TV guide on my on demand is not asking me to subscribe or anything its been working free, unlike the maps and the other crap you have to pay for.

    On Demand is a feature for Sprint phones. Us Verizon users have the same program, but it's called Handmark Express, which you have to pay for. TV Guide is not on Handmark Express. Express and On Demand are not exactly alike.

    I use Pocket TV Browser from Guide Remote:

    http://www.guideremote.com/

    It works by setting up your listings on the PC you sync to and creating a database to download. It is not free ($10) for the software and ($10 a year for the listings) and the interface needs work but it has excellent search capabilities and is totally customizable.
    Newton 120 > PalmPilot Pro > Palm III > Visor Deluxe > Visor Prism > Treo 90 > Treo 600 (Sprint) > Treo 700p (Verizon)

    here's a good thread:

    It's actually the thread about TV2Nite, but it's also an exploration of free alternatives including some websites you might want to visit. As far as free software is concerned, you're looking at the TV guide thing (above), TV2Nite (if you only need the primary networks) or Pocket TV Browser (you'll find it in the link) which requires a desktop conduit and a (free) subscription to zap2it XML tv services.

    Eventually the OD TV Guide on the Sprint 700p is a charge program. Mine finally asked me to pay to use it last night. I promptly deleted On Demand and reclaimed over 5 mb

    I am also using PocketTV Browser from doublebit but I can't pay for it cause developer doesn't support it anymore.....tho it's still up there free for the taking. I also use the free XMLTV listings from Zap2It

    I'm not a big TV watcher, but I use wireless.tvguide.com. It's free.
