Default Endless Repeats on the Home Channel

So I decided to look up how many times a single show plays out in a week. Choosing randomly, I searched the TV guide for " Escape To the Country " for a week long period, Monday to Sunday.

To my horror, this one show plays out TEN TIMES inside of a week. This is DISGUSTING.

MC. Remind me again how you're addressing endless repeats ?

Endless repeats are being addressed on M-NET CHANNELS ONLY.

Dstv buys channels with content and home channel is no exception

Out of interest home channel often airs. More than 1 season at a time are you sure it's not 2 or 3 different seasons playing

They buying cheap. If you look at what the overseas Universal Channels have & 117. There is a huge difference. For starters they have all 4 Chicago programs, the new Macgyver and so on. We have season 1 of NCIS New Orleans & season 4 Librarians. Every other show that is on is a repeat, of a repeat. Sony & Fox Life hasn't had anything new for over a year now. Most channels I look at follow the same patterns 100% repeat or 98% + repeat.

Some of these channels have been repeating content for so long that there must surely be tonnes of "new" ancient content they can acquire!

Yippers. I checked to be sure. It was the same episode of the same season each time
