Default eMovie channels - wrong synopses

Hi,

This heads-up is for your team in case they maybe need to be made aware of this, but not expecting much can be done about it.

For some time I've noticed the eMovie channels regularly mixing up their movie synopses.
It's always about when there's more than one version of a movie title, in which case they surprisingly often mix up some aspects of the info for the year / actors / director / the description.

Latest example noticed;
140 The Runner @ 20:00 on Mon. 18/12.
They are advertising the 1999 version. The description is correct in this instance (if meant to be this version), but it does not star Nicolas Cage - he is in the 2015 version.

Sorry for typo - they're advertising the 1999 ver, there's no 2009 ver involved.

Hello

Our apologies, e.tv has supplied the 2015 version as the title they will be airing, we will amend the EPG. Thanks again.

Hi Trisan,

I'm no longer personally interested in this movie as the 2015 one isn't desired, but just to let you know that no change to the EPG has transpired yet.
