Default Phantom CU+ movie resurfaces

Here's an interesting one MC.

There's currently two CU+ movies that both have the title Submerged.
The software somewhere thinks they're a mini-series so has created a folder.

The one that says it's from channel 112 appears to be normal, but doesn't have a release year.
Only it is found when doing a Word Search.

The other has the same thumbnail poster but claims to be from channel 104, has a different synopsis and different length, and states that it aired on 17 Nov. and expires on 30 Aug....
Its details and the inability to search for it suggests it's either some sort of phantom long ago previously broadcast movie with the same name, or far less likely an initial entry that had a number of mistakes, that's ended up sitting stuck on MC's CU+ system.


The other concern is this possibility of there sometime being two legitimate different movies with the same name showing across the platform at the same time - is the software then equipped with an override option that would prevent them automatically being falsely grouped together as a mini-series?

Hi Optimist

The CU team is checking the title to see what might have happened. Update to follow once received.
