It doesn't distinguish between Explora, HD & SD PVRs - it has 1 icon to represent all 3. And I'm sure not ALL series available are listed - for CU it lists 32 series and for CU+ it lists 19 series (including some that are not even available any more like The Arrangement.

And the CU section lists The Durrels season 1 which was only ever available on CU+ while it is Season 2 that is currently available (and also on CU+ - not CU).

I used to find that info always accurate, in my usage of it anyway.
I've never found a reliable alternative, except for the forum list thread that Mad Cat mentioned but I think that was interim and it wouldn't help anyone beyond the forum.

(Not that the forum's highlight threads help anyone beyond the forum either AFAIK, but I could be wrong about that.)

@Krugie - thanks for bringing the CU / CU+ mixup mayhem into it, I touched on that recently in the Missing on CU thread but it fits here best.

Folks let's rather get the guys to update the report properly on DStv.com. It stretches over 3-5 Excel pages, so not practical to post it here on the Forum. Plus the list we would publish here is exactly the same list you find on there.

Is the Excel-like page still available? And if so, how does one access it via the website? The "Catch Up Calendar" on the website (under TV Guide/Catch up Calendar) points this

https://www.dstv.com/en-za/topic/pre...150402#catchup

which is not nearly complete (or accurate).

No, there's no longer a link from the Series Calendar webpage that that goes to (if as we think by Excel pages MoM means the CU Schedule). And yes, it is currently all round difficult to find in my experience too.

https://www.dstv.com/topic/catch-up-schedule

The CU Schedule is still raw data, the webpage needs many, many, many clicks on "Show More+" to get anything intelligible out of it. Then one must realise the need to use one's browser search to find anything in that forest of info.
Initially discussed so long ago that I think most will have given up on that, but yes it is usually very accurate so if it can be made user friendly and in fair time it could be the answer.

In it's current form it is of no use to anyone. Page 1 list programs from March & April that has not been on CU or CU+ for months & months.

It should only include programs currently available and with proper search and sort functionality including available dates - and distinguish between Explora, HD & SD PVRs - to have any value.

I have now clicked on Show More 40 times and it is still programs from April.

MoM, I challenge you to find the latest Game of Thrones on there... I suspect it will not be possible during a standard working day...

There is also no logic to the sorting and, for example, the 1st 3 lines shown are all 3 for the same show and season (Reach for the stars) but showing 3 different "number of episodes" in the season.

I decided to click it until it can go no further, what used to be needed to get all the info.
(Certainly hundreds of clicks, had to use a time machine to post this quick result )

Turns out that it stretches from late last year (with some sort of error for all of that) until April this year. That means it is no longer a live feed, seems to have been abandoned... or never checked on in all these months

Again, that is why I ask for a list on the forum, updated monthly.
