    Lightbulb How to get started with creating a TV listings page

    I'm looking for some resources on how to get started with making TV listings page, similar to http://www.tvguide.co.uk

    I under that I'll need to use an API, but I've never used an API before. However I know HTML, CSS and Javascript.

    Can anyone give me any tips on where to start or point me in the right direction. Perhaps you can explain how a page like this could work, especially in a responsive way like the one above.

    I can't give you any help on the API issues. No doubt some of the knowledgeable people here will point you in the right direction.

    However, I suggest that you first look into the legal and licensing issues. In the UK (and probably many other countries), TV listings are the copyright of the content providers. Don't assume that you can just scrape them off another site and display them on your own site. There might be some way in which you can legally do that, but you need to check it first, before you commit time and energy into developing the site.
