How can I access "options chain" data in real-time?

I'm wondering if anyone knows how to get the data for a stock's "options chain"? I looked through the docs, but didn't find anything on it. The other caveat is, I need real-time options chain data frequently. Best case would be every minute. But might be able to work with refreshed options chain data every 5 minutes.

Hey Mike, we're currently in the middle of implementing Options in QuantConnect! You can follow the progress on github.

If you can't wait for us to implement options, another option (pun intended) would be to acquire a data provider with a REST api and implement a BaseData for it.

Hey Mike, I just stumbled across this. It looks like YAHOO can get real-time options pricing!?!?

I'm not sure how good/accurate the data is, but here it is in HTML form.

It looks like they also have top OrderBook data!

Is there a way to get weekly/monthly options minute data on expiration date? I can only get the contracts for a day before expiration or earlier.
