I agree that is the way to go - but many people are not present on this forum and will not have any idea what is going on/wrong. Maybe a mail message needs to be sent out to all Exploras?

For Twin Peaks the damage is done though - unfortunately.

Thanks for that suggestion Krugie - we are first seeing whether something can be done on our side.

Thanks for the MC feedback in this thread. Please also consider a repeat day for these broadcasts until the recording situation has stabilised.

This is shutting the stable door after the horse has bolted. If I can't watch all of it, I won't be watching any of it. I'll have to confine my bingeing to booze this week

I personally spoke to Jan du Plessis who heads up all M-Net channels. He is seeing if it is possible to repeat the episode from this weekend before this coming weekend. Will update you when I know more and if it is possible

Thanks Marietjie. Though it won't stop the binge drinking.

Thumbs up

Some better news - MC have been wise and now put all the episodes to date on CU+ (Explora internet connected Catch Up Plus, also available via DStv Now and Online CU).
Season 1 - E01 to E09
Season 2 - E01 to E09 (numbered differently but correctly to what was broadcast - E01 = "E13", E09 = "E21". "E22" will be the first episode broadcast this coming Sat. evening.)

But why no announcement about it here yet? Anyway...

@optimist - the episodes were always going to be on Catch Up Plus and has been there since this weekend.

It does look like they will re-air it all this weekend -we're just waiting for confirmation and exact details of timings, etc. We've also built in a 5-6 minute break between episodes to help series recordings fire as they should.
