We've got hCalendar on all of Yahoo's UK TV listings:
We implemented it using a somewhat icky hack (an empty ABBR element
with the ISO date in the title), but it parses in most parsers whislt
not exposing the ISO date as a tooltip to browsers. Most recent
testing suggests that it will still be revealed in screen readers set
to read ABBR titles though, which is unfortunate.
Oh, there's a bug in our output that's putting a translation string
(%z) into the ISO date where the timezone should go. That'll be fixed
