How does one find the contentIDs for a given channel? In this case, sling.

I'm working through the ECP commands and I'm unable to determine the contentIDs for Sling. The goal is simplified interface that is able to directly launch a number a given Sling TV channels. It's funny that the query/media-player returns minutia on bit rates but not higher level info on what's playing.

contentID is channel specific and I doubt if it will be exposed to anyone other that internal/required parties.

Best, not so straight way, you could try is get on to their web page, launch the video/series you want and then trace the browser debug logs to find the contentID hoping that its not already obfuscated.
