Default Vuzu Amp schedule changes

Don't know if anyone else has noticed this, but since the beginning of July, Vuzu Amp has very quietly and quite annoyingly changed their schedule.

Most importantly, series have moved from the half hour start times to the hour This now means that series on VuzuAmp clash with series on M-net if you are setting recordings!! I really don't understand the logic of doing this (again) - it's almost as if they WANT to make our lives more difficult. Just for example: I record MNet 6pm (now 5:40pm) comedy and then Real Housewives (not currently being screened, thankfuly) on Vuzu Amp at 6:30pm. The Vuzu Amp 6:30pm show has been moved to 6pm

Secondly, if you relied on a repeat, it most likely is not where is was before. I saw last night Training Day and Doubt repeats are in new slots.

I only watch Gotham on this channel and I did notice it is now 30 minutes earlier - causing a conflict where I never had one before. This is especially problematic for some people since there is NO REPEAT WHATSOEVER of Gotham and the channel has (typically) not bothered to respond to queries as to why this is the case.

Has there even been an announcement about this? It was something that could be seen in the highlights, but there really needed to be more than simply that.

Hi Guys, it looks like the time slot in question is because of V-Entertainment having recently gone on a production break on VUZU AMP and VUZU.

We're hoping to have it back to normal around August.

Please let us know how else we can assist?

Apologies for the inconvenience caused.

So a series goes on break, and the entire schedule has to move by 30 minutes - don't think this is a reasonable answer to the open slot

Why not replace with something else while the series is on break? And, where is this 30 minutes being used; has it been added onto Vuzic??

Really not happy about this at all!

MC, Please advise date Vuzu Amp will revert to normal times?

Real Housewives starts next week, and current times create recording conflicts.
