Default M-Net HD: "Series TBA" and "Supersport" - placeholder events

I see that there are two new programs on MNet HD. "Series TBA" and "Supersport". They appear quite regularly on the EPG.

Seriously though, this has GOT to be sorted out. We are less than 4 days to the weekend and the EPG guide isn't showing what sport is going to be shown in HD.

This has been going on for months and is really amateur. Please can this be looked into.

Exactly, if we can look on the SS website to check (which is updated 2 weeks in advance) then why cant the HD team

I have just looked on the EPG for Saturday the 5th on MNet HD. Again, that strange series "SuperSport" rears its ugly head. Also, the program line up is completely different to that advertised on the SuperSport website.

This is very poor.

The slot is scheduled as a SuperSport slot (not series) on the HD EPG as we do not have final information yet at the time when it is scheduled on our EPG system some weeks in advance. We get specific information from SuperSport on Monday mornings for the coming week and then the EPG is updated. Please keep in mind, however, that sports programmes are subject to change. Regards, Anne-Marie

I don't understand this at all. SuperSport run a two week schedule on their webpage. Plus, the information is correct for the same event on MNet and SS1 ... ?

Exactly, the SS site is accurate. And you say the info is received on Monday mornings but most weeks this is only updated on Thurs or Fri

This issue is happening again.

Saturday's MNetHD EPG guide indicates SuperSport between 2pm and 7pm.

Agreed. Makes scheduling recordings or planning impossible. Will escalate urgently.

I see now they've got the kick-off concert scheduled from 14:00 until 19:00, the concert was only about 3 hours long. So have they just stuck something in there to keep you/us quiet?

In fact its on tomorrow for 3 hours, and I'm sure it saw in on MNet HD today in SD with the normal MNet logo on
