Automated processing of channel list

Just as an FYI in case plans emerge to change the channel listings format.   The list of Virgin Media channels - in particular the table - is being occasionally parsed by a plug-in to Home-Assistant so that it can provide an accurate list of channels to users and also facilitate automated switching from SD to HD versions of channels.   So, for example, if a new column were to be added then adding it on the right hand end would be transparent to the 3rd-party code.   The code is at https://github.com/bertbert72/HomeAssistant_VirginTivo (virgintivo.py in particular).   Of course, changes to the format or URL are entirely up to the editors / controllers on TVChannelLists.
