Ok, I've got json data and decoded it with json_decode:

      $data = json_decode($json_info,true);

when I do this:

      var_dump($data);

I get results like this:

Now that I've got that array.... I'm not sure how to use it.

Can you give me an example of code that will display the first six results for the ChannelName, DisplayTime and ProgramTitle, after they are parsed, so I have:

ChannelName value 1, DisplayTime value 1, ProgramTitle value 1
ChannelName value 2, DisplayTime value 2, ProgramTitle value 2
ChannelName value 3, DisplayTime value 3, ProgramTitle value 3
ChannelName value 4, DisplayTime value 4, ProgramTitle value 4
ChannelName value 5, DisplayTime value 5, ProgramTitle value 5

Big ask I know, I would really appreciate the help!

$tvShows = json_decode($json_info,true);

for ($i = 0; $i < 5) {
    echo 'ChannelName is '. $tvShows[$i]["ChannelName"]. 
    ', DisplayTime is ' .$tvShows[$i]["DisplayTime"]. 
    ', ProgramTitle is ' .$tvShows[$i]["ProgramTitle"] . '<br />';
    }

I think this should work, although I did not test it.

Got it!

I had to change the 'for' to this:

for ($i = 0; $i <= 5; $i++) {   //based on example at php.net

but you got me going in the right direction here - thank you very much!
