Can we please get some clarity regarding Last Week Tonight with John Oliver? It used to air on M-Net Edge on Saturdays and we have been advised it will move to Sundays on M-Net but that it is only starting on 9 April - so nothing on Sunday 2 April. Will it be on a break for a week in the US or are we going to be two weeks behind the US now?

OK never mind - I have managed to establish there is no episode in the US this Sunday so we will remain 1 week behind as always.

From one of the Mods in another thread;

Quote:
The foreign language movie will screen on a Sunday [on M-Net] directly after the 8pm movie.
Please note that the EPG for next Sunday shows the movie starting only after an in-between repeat of the series Big Little Lies. Makes the foreign language movie too late IMO.
From the week after, when will the slot for Last Week Tonight with John Oliver be? I hope after the foreign language movie (I like both so am not biased).

Also please note that the slot for next Sunday's Carte Blanche again has "TBA" on it this week

Fair to say MC are betting on the PVR (Xplora or otherwise) to clear up this kind of complaint for them. "Just record it and watch it later" they'll say. They are gambling on you having one.

I don't think that's the thinking. I know many people who choose to watch live TV on a Sunday.

It looks to me like a coin toss between putting John Oliver or the foreign movie first. Whatever the end decision ends up being, I hope it will have been well researched first.

I'm a bit cynical when it comes to this issue. Let's see, what are you planning on doing with the "too late" movie?

This doesn't explain the TBA (although probably related) but I suspect Carte Blanche will be a "new season" again as of April so all series recordings will have to be reset. This normally happens at the beginning of each April.

I agree in terms of Catchup Plus (assuming all are always in sync) but on Catchup it might be available on the Explora but not on the HD PRV or SD PVR so some distinction is required.
