Thumbs down 198 & 199 are NOT SuperSport overflow channels

Weeks ago SuperSport stopped using 198 & 199 (and other similar channels) as their overflow channels, those are now numbered from channel 211 onwards.

Yet.....


198 wrongly designated for SS.jpg

199 wrongly designated for SS.jpg


No wonder we have confusion like this going on...

So which is it - lack of communication, supervision, coordination, care, QA follow-up, or a combination??
This deserves 8.5/10 on my idiot-service score

Not acceptable at all - the responsible ones will be tarred and feathered.

Thanks for your and others' ongoing efforts Marietjie, unfortunately those involved continue to not understand the importance of this one as 2 days later this simple change still hasn't been done

What's worse - Idols was on 198 until Sunday so for that one they haven't merely overlooked this, they've actually set it up again this way
As is said, the devil is in the details...

I'll leave it there, TIA.

I just looked at my Explora around these channel numbers and am really troubled to report that 2 months later this hasn't changed

I think you may have a discipline problem in some areas MC.
No point in further feedback, action is needed here far more than words.

They are probably still struggling to remove the tar and feathers...
