They are fairly static. Unless there's a new provider/sat. Easily

Not chan lists - transponder scan lists. We could maybe host on videolan? I
don't mind maintaining but i still think offline is better as lists are
fairly static - at least for the established birds.

Not workable because we're not sure about offline files? Or not workable
because of something else?
