For soaps I think this is even more problematic than a show like Carte Blanche since you would need to check the "new season" search almost daily and at least weekly due to the EPG only containing the next week.
We generally try to advertise Carte Blanche because it's such an odd time of year. For most other series you can expect this to happen in the first week of the year (e.tv, eNCA, Ignition and ITV do this for some series). You can always tell if a soap or magazine show will be affected based on episode numbers. If the episode number is higher than 300 then it's a safe bet it won't change seasons, e.g. Eastenders is on episode 5418 at the moment, so it's unlikely to change season numbers.
I have suggested a 'season pass' feature to the decoder team which would let you record all seasons of a show, but at present it seems unlikely that they will be able to implement it.
