Missing The Big Bang Theory.

And not sure if Satisfaction should be on CU, it's not in the online CU Schedule but the first season was.

That needs to go in the other thread as it's on CU+ which is also an online service.
Missing on Catch Up online

But don't worry, the Mods will sort it out if need be.

Default Criminal Minds

Criminal Minds (S11E13) is missing from Explora CatchUp!

Raised the issue on the Facebook page where I was informed by someone at DStv that it was on CU+ and that space constraints prevented the episode from being download to CU on the Explora. First time that I've heard that used as an excuse! Particularly when in the half-hour or so since expressing my disbelief at the specious space argument, epsodes for three Afrikaans series arrived on the Explora. Total running time of these 3 episodes was far longer than the single, missing episode of Criminal Minds.

Is this going to be another example like what has just happened with Major Crimes? The last 4 episodes never made it to my Explora and we had to resort to recording them so that we could watch them at our discretion.

Have noticed that far more, shall we say 'rubbish', is landing up on the Explora. In this I include all the so-called Reality series. As I said on FB, if there's a space constraint, drop all the reality series/

Question: When is reality not reality?
Answer: When it's a contrived situation expressly made for tv.

There is Reality and then there's reality. Much of what is termed reality is eminently unwatchable.

If fibre was available in this area, it would work out cheaper to pay Telkom more money for my Internet and switch to NetFlix or ShowMax.

@EmJay - I think the person helping you may have been making presumptions and generalising.
  • For Criminal Minds S11 on my Explora I've got E10, E11 and E13 on CU+ , with last week's E12 on CU.
  • Based on the expiry dates I'm seeing, E10 and E11 have moved to CU+ now which is normal for some series, that way they're still available after normal expiry.
  • E12 being on CU says to me that this is the normal state of affairs for the series, and that they've accidentally put E13 on CU+ too early instead, something else we see happen on occasions.
  • Why you haven't seen any of it arrive is another matter, we do rarely see a difference between Exploras but perhaps you should post your signal strength and signal quality for tuner 3 - Help \ General Information \ Tuner Status.
I've yet to see any series moved mid-season from CU to CU+ as far as first deliveries go.

Missing the following overnight express episodes;

1. Of this week's double episodes of Grey's Anatomy - E18 has arrived, but not E19.
2. Vikings E09. However the folder is back at the top so it may have played out but been incorrectly named, and put on CU+ instead. That folder is not in a good condition, contains Eps. 1, 2, 6, 7, 8 (with all but E08 on CU+ , ignoring the possible mis-named one that factor would then be correct).
Hope this is given top priority due to the shared live time slots involved.

3. The Blacklist E18.
