Abstract

   The Uniform Resource Locator (URL) scheme "CRID:" has been devised to
   allow references to current or future scheduled publications of
   broadcast media content over television distribution platforms and
   the Internet.

   The initial intended application is as an embedded link within
   scheduled programme description metadata that can be used by the home
   user or agent to associate a programme selection with the
   corresponding programme location information for subsequent automatic
   acquisition.

   This document reproduces the TV-Anytime CRID definition found in the
   TV-Anytime content referencing specification, and is published as an
   RFC for ease of access and registration with the Internet Assigned
   Numbers Authority (IANA).
