Unless there's been a mistake it looks like [I]The Big Bang Theory[/I] will be on yet another break, at least next week - last week's episode is scheduled for that slot in the EPG.

Reminder - many have 8 day EPGs, if the info is available earlier we need to hear about it at least 9 days before, please.

@Forumites:
My household is starting to think that it's better to wait for close-to-the-U.S. series to later arrive on 115 M-Net City. Not sure if all M-Net series make it to there though, and the future late night edgy;) ones might not at all, don't know...
The only other exception for viewing these 101 supplied series would be with those that are made superstacked CU episodes (not CU+), which we would only start viewing a few weeks later.

Ok for those with enough patience and not that involved with the social media spoilers / need-to-discuss-live factors.
Any other thoughts or info about this?

[QUOTE=Optimist;336994]Unless there's been a mistake it looks like [I]The Big Bang Theory[/I] will be on yet another break, at least next week - last week's episode is scheduled for that slot in the EPG.[/QUOTE]

There will be another break. According to Wikipedia, Episode 19 is only scheduled to be aired in the US next Thursday, making it impossible for us to see it until the following week.

So that would be my solution to ensure uninterrupted weekly viewing.

I don't find the need to avoid spoilers to be that strong a reason to have shows close to the US as I've never found it that difficult to not be spoiled. Although to be fair, I'm not a massive social media user.

However, the other reason for having shows close to the US is to avoid people choosing to watch through other means and not DStv as if they know that a show is out there then they may not be prepared to wait. And since my proposed scenario of starting in January does involve a waiting period, it may not be ideal.

This is going off-topic, but why did my previous post require approval by a moderator? I can't see anything about it that would necessitate that.

@Citanul - the auto moderate feature either picks up on language, or hyperlinks and then automatically places the post in moderation until one of us approves it.

I know that. I'm asking what specifically it was about my post as there are no hyperlinks and I can't spot anything I'd written that I would have thought would have triggered it.

Suspect it is the multi-quoted you used.

'This is us' has been spoiled rotten for me somewhat. And that's from just reading the Opera mini news feed headlines.

Optimist 2017-03-22 23:44

Thanks. So there we have it, with just 3 of us we can see again that there's no certain one size fits all solution even after all this time to get to know its workings. Have to wonder how the various Americans go about it.

M-Net City's current and future content is too uncertain, and another channel to add to our own scheduling complexity, so no longer part of the idea.
We're now thinking about stockpile recordings from the start of new seasons, but just for the really problematic hot series. We always record backups anyway.
May do enough for a few people.

MC Marietjie 2017-03-23 06:21

@Optimist keep an eye on Catch Up Plus during April - we're planning to superstack quite a few series. Will post more info when we have it.
Also Aletta hinted at our media showcase at the possibility of a pop-up channel that will help you to record your own box sets. No further info or dates available at this stage.

Thanks Marietjie, personally it will be a safety fallback option (I'm soft-capped). A good alternative for some.

:cool: Brill concept, more ease of use and could potentially be great with our scheduling. Good for latecomers.
I hope it continues to make sense to the point of coming about, it's really kind of you to share this idea early.

Still I wonder how many would put their money where their mouth is and patiently adopt this "slow" option... ;)

[QUOTE=Optimist;337054]Have to wonder how the various Americans go about it.[/QUOTE]

Well, obviously they don't need to worry about being spoiled. And there are times when shows get pre-empted for other things such as sporting events, major news events (if I recall correctly the Boston Marathon bombings resulted in some shows being delayed by a week), and things like the presidential debates. So it's less an issue for them as they'd have an interest in the things that bump the shows from the schedule.

I would also imagine that TV viewership in general drops over December and January, which is why shows go on a break during that time. I've no idea if the same thing applies here, but if the typical South African viewing patterns are different from American ones then that is going to lead to a mismatch in what we want to see (and when) and what we're able to see.

MC Marietjie 2017-03-23 09:25

@Citanul - the USA viewing patterns are different as their seasons are different. They do not take a big break over December and January - this is a South African thing. Their big breaks are over summer July and August. That is why most new shows launch in September in the US - this is usually the month of premieres. And then a break over Thanksgiving in November and a short break for Christmas and New Year.

Optimist 2017-03-23 09:33

That all makes much sense.

[QUOTE=Citanul;337093]Well, obviously they don't need to worry about being spoiled.[/QUOTE]

Not so sure about this part, I'm thinking more along the lines of those Americans who still don't want the breaks, or to be pressured into specific viewing structures.
So would be interesting to learn about that segment's concepts of spoilers, and how those few handle the unwanted delays.

Citanul 2017-03-23 11:05

[QUOTE=MC Marietjie;337099]a short break for Christmas and New Year.[/QUOTE]

Which is the December/January break I was talking about. Most American shows go on a break from mid-December and only come back in January (if not later).
