Import from another channel

Hey all, is it possible to import info from another channel. Am example would be that a channel has weather info being displayed and I want to pull that info into my channel. Kind of a weird example but all I could think of right now. Thanks

Re: Import from another channel

Are you referring to a channel created with the SDK, or, a Direct Publisher channel?

Windows desktop software for creating and managing MRSS, JSON, and FireTV feeds @ https://github.com/rrirower. No Programming, JSON or MRSS knowledge required.

Either, but currently I think I would be more interested in the SDK channels as I think the ones I am interested in would be too complicated to be made by Direct Publisher.  Thanks a lot!

You can share information among your own channels through the registry (assuming all your channels were signed with the same key), but there's no way to extract information from someone else's channel.  Everything is pretty well sand-boxed.

Re: Import from another channel

I was hoping to utilize the authentication process of the major networks and then import info after they had authenticated from the other channel.  So, probably a loaded question, but what's the process that the major networks use to authenticate the end users to verify they are a cable subscriber, and is that something I can (or am allowed to) do if I built my own app?  Thanks.
