Default Shortage of BO titles on SD PVR

Here's a request from a friend;

Why are there only 11 Box Office titles on our SD PVR, and at this time of the year?! [Confirmed.]
Normally there are about 15.
How about Our Kind Of Traitor and Kickboxer: Vengeance please.

BTW 3 of the 11 are expiring this week (one late tonight) with no sign of anything new still this year on the horizon.

Thanks Pamela, and in advance for anything more. I see that the fairly recent movie Morgan was since added.

Well, 2 more other type titles have loaded... fine, but as I'm fairly sure the majority still expect Box Office to be mostly about the latest from Hollywood one would hope the suggestions in post #1 are still in the works
It's easy to do the math if familiar with a decoder's workings, there's tons of room for those titles, and which will be expiring soon enough to not cause any traffic jam.

We'll leave our involvement there, have presumed that this imbalance on SD PVR BO was merely an oversight by the seasonal skeleton staff.

Well is this another case of the Pace HD 2P being left out of the loop. I have never ever seen more than 12 BO titles on my 2P and sometimes a little as 8. All ways thought that is how it is supposed to be. Most of the times it is around 10.

Jan, I've answered what I can of this in your decoder-reboots thread where I believe it best belongs, it's not at all related to this thread's concerns.

@Pamela - please ignore, we'll probably both delete these recent posts later.

No sign of those other movies, my friend has given up. Jan did help us discover that they may not have made it onto any HD PVRs either.

I suspect that this was a misunderstanding so the rights for putting it on the other decoder(s) wasn't obtained, perhaps related to the earlier mistaken plan(?) to instead(?) include some old Ghostbusters movies which wasn't possible on these decoders

Oh well, things happen...

And now it looks like much of that space was reserved to add lengthy titles to the older decoders' Premium CU for the rest of the festive season.

So far - Phantom Of The Opera, The Royal Variety Show, and a teen / family movie.
Fair enough
