Are there any online tv listings that keep previous days up for viewing for a while after?

I only want to see up to a few days in the past but most guides i've come across don't show past listings at all.

Thanks for any help.

I was going to suggest digiguide, but that software really stinks badly.

It cannot update quick enough for schedule changes. My freeview box EPG can do this the without any problem. I have digiguide listings that never, had been updated for past schedule changes. Digiguide really need to improve their bad service they have now. If the EPG can get information instantly, then i fail to see. Why digiguide cannot get it just as quickly, bad design it seems.

Try radio times online, many say that is good. Not sure if it has past listings, but wouldn't be supprised if it has.

Use a pc tv box to collect EPG info and keep that, for past informations. If you fail to find, a reliable source on the net.

Radio Times is a good one, you have to register (for free) if you want more than BBC ONE, TWO, itv1, C4 & five, though.

I maybe wrong but I think the Times online has a section with previous Times editions including TV listings.

is very good.

You can go forward a week and back a week and you can choose your preferred channels in a grid form. And when you hover over a programme it comes up with the details. And you can also choose the grid to cover 3, 6 or 9 hours. Very quick and easy to use. Only thing is it starts off at midnight by default so you have to tell it the grid start time each time you use it.

Not at all... they only get what is sent.. and many freeview boxes epgs are not upto date either.

BBC runs 2 minutes behind most of the day... epg is never right....
