DESCRIPTION

       <http://seguranca.sapo.pt/termosdeutilizacao/apis_rss_webservices.html> for their terms of
       service. (automatic translation suggests it's free for personal use, verfication
       appreciated)

       First you must run tv_grab_pt_meo --configure to choose which stations you want to
       receive.
