Default Vodafone Test Series H/L

All highlights are shown as 30 minute packages, however they seem to be scheduled on the EPG is all sorts of time lengths, for example today on SSHD2:

4 hours - 20:00 to 24:00
3 hours - 01:00 to 04:00
Last night there was an hour scheduled

SS2 seems to get it right sometimes, they have a bunch of 30 mins and some hour packages.

So why schedule something for 3 or 4 hours which includes 6 or 8 x 30 mins highlights, all it does it make people record extra & creates recording conficts

Hi Merv,

We are checking the schedules to have the 30min events captured correctly.

Thanks

Merv, you SA supporters should be happy because whenever SA play, SS give highlights all the time, SS also goes one step further by showing SA highlights on other games as well

I wanted to watch the highlights of the India vs England game after work - SS only shows us those highlights late in the night, how disappointing to stay in SA and support another country
