Thanks, this helps a lot and with enough reading of all the detail it is now finally possible to know what's widely going on again (subject to change of course ).

However, a number of oversights need clarity so I'll do that again... it is clear that the M-Group need a more practiced proof reader (I'm available, but am expensive )

Firstly re another thread - your schedule update for M-Net Terrestrial highlights thread is titled... February 2016

Quote:

Due to the high age restriction, M-Net will not be able to screen 11.22.63 during the day.

This is how 11.22.63 will be scheduled on M-Net channel 101:
· 15 March at 20:30 & 21:30 will be episode 3 & 4
· 22 March at 20:30 & 21:30 will be episode 5 & 6
· 29 March at 20:30, 21:30 will be episode 7 & 8
· 5 April at 20:30 will be episode 9
This again implied that Chicago Fire and Chicago PD will possibly now return on 12 April. This time that is confirmed later in the thread, but as this is the first mention re these actual return dates it also needs clear mention in this section.
EDIT: Chicago PD now returns on the 5th of April, see newer thread.

This is the first confirmation of BBT's return date (could only be guessed at before) so it is not a reminder.

Also, although somewhat implied it is not made clear that before the break there will still be a new episode on 16 March.

21:30 11.22.63 01 "Other Voices, Other Rooms"*Chicago Fire returns from Production Break on 12 April*

At 21:30 is Chicago PD, not Chicago Fire.
(Same mistake was made in the Terrestrial thread.)

Please note that the series 11.22.63 will be scheduled as a double bill for the next few weeks at 20:30 and 21:30 until Chicago Fire and PD return from their broadcast break. M-Net will screen all 9 episodes (pilot episode was 80minutes long in the U.S. and that is why it may be listed as 8 episodes on the web). Due to the high age restriction, M-Net will not be able to screen 11.22.63 during the day.

Re the series 11.22.63 - I understand your detail below about the pilot episode being split into 2 on MNET - however what has happened to the pilot episode being aired by MNET at all? It appears that it is starting with episode 2(or 3) on Tue 15/3/2016 i.e the episode entitled "The Kill floor", entirely skipping the pilot episode entitled "The Rabbit Hole" which was episode 1 in the US and, I presume, would have been episodes 1 and 2 on MNET.

This is how 11.22.63 will be scheduled on M-Net channel 101:
· 15 March at 20:30 & 21:30 will be episode 3 & 4
· 22 March at 20:30 & 21:30 will be episode 5 & 6
· 29 March at 20:30, 21:30 will be episode 7 & 8
· 5 April at 20:30 will be episode 9

They showed "The Rabbit Hole" part 1 & 2 last Tue., was discussed in other threads.
For details the best thread to start with is http://forum.dstv.com/showthread.php?t=33004
