In the past we had an activeperl script that worked.

Which prompts the obvious question: Why are you not still using it?

    the way the content is being delivered changed (Sat receiver) so it is not an option. now looking to get some the headlines via the web.

      So, it's really only the retrieval and parsing you are after since the rest of your old script would still apply? In which case look into LWP for the retrieval and HTML::Parser for the parsing. That should make fairly light work of it, hopefully.
