Hi faf_za,

This is in the works, should be available in a future Explora software update.

Cheers

MC Nic.

How about a CU index / status page on the Explora - somewhat similar to the old online CU index that's currently in transition, it could list all to come in a month, what's ending, quickly reflect corrections and changes, as well as showing what's been cancelled from CU and what's been moved to CU+.

There's something similar to this in the works too. Will use the EPG.

Hi jdido87,

Welcome to the forum

There should already be some Discovery and History shows available on Catch Up online, in the DStv Now app and on the Explora. I don't think the shows you mentioned above have been offered to us by the studio for Catch Up.

But I'll send your suggestions through to the content teams and we can potentially put in a request with the studios.

MC Nic.

Please consider having an "Other (Live) Airings" option added to CU+ titles' menus on the Explora so that alternative HD recording options can be easily found.

Even if CU+ will be offering HD downloads soon enough it would still then be useful for those with limited bandwidth, those trying to save bandwidth, and those without broadband at all.

I also hope that when CU+ does go HD that the service will still offer a SD download option for those limited or wanting to save on bandwidth.

Thanks

I'll send this through to the team.

We will be introducing a high quality option in the near future but you'll still also have the option to download SD to save data.
