The new series Hunters on m-net on Tuesdays is not on cu or cu+ yet. It is not in the long cu(+) schedule. It is not in the series calendar for either, and not even in the new On TV series calendar section which I think should include things not on any cu. So where is it?

Hi there - we do not necessarily list every single series in the series calendar. And not every new series goes on to Catch Up or Catch Up Plus - these services try to cover most of the popular series but does not cover every single series on DStv or M-Net. You can check under New Series on your Explora's search function.

Surely if it's highlighted in the monthly M-group listings it would be on one or the other CU services (unless the studio / supplier refuses)?

Bingo! We don't always get rights for everything to be on Catch Up or Catch Up Plus - this is negotiated separately. Remember when we buy a show to play on a channel, we don't buy all the rights for that show outright as if we've bought the DVD. Each place you want to play it needs to be negotiated separately and sometimes paid for in addition to the original purchase price.

Very difficult to make a list of things that WON'T be on Catch Up, which is why we have a list of things that WILL be on Catch Up. We will highlight a show in our listings sometimes even if it is not on Catch Up. That is also why shows carry indicators of whether they are available on Catch Up or not, so you can set a series recording for it.

Thanks for the detail.

Ok, except for this;

We used to get those indications in the M-Net etc highlight threads at the bottom of each entry, but no longer so it's become more of a hunting or guessing game :-/
(Hunting"" pun not intended )

Not sure why one of us haven't mentioned it before.

That is why I started this thread asking for a list of what IS on CU. Updated once a month.

That calendar used to be quite unreliable re detail and any using it period accuracy, have noticed it seems to be improved now but I'm hesitant to trust it as I'm sure many others here still are.
