Default Catch Up titles at risk of being delayed

This is a bit of trial run - the idea is for us to post regular updates on shows that we know are at risk of being delayed in delivering to your decoder. Delays can be caused by a number of different issue which include technical errors on the episode itself, delay in delivery.

Please let us know if this works for you.

The Leftovers ep 4 and 5
The Road ep 98
The Player ep 7
Chicago Fire ep 14
Rhythm City ep 228
Skeem Saam ep 157

Please note that some shows that have a close to live production, will not be available immediately after the live broadcast (example would be Carte Blanche). We strive to get these shows to you within 24 hours of the broadcast. Thank you for your understanding.

Thanks Mom - I watched The Leftovers Ep 5 on CatchUp on my Explora last night though?

Good to know - it has delivered to some boxes and not to others.

This is a great idea M, thanks!

While on the subject of Carte Blanche (sorry if a bit too off topic) - it would be great if it could somehow be known beforehand if some parts of it can't be included on the CU copy. As we don't know I choose to always record instead (unless watching live).

Although it would've been great but alas, we don't know that beforehand until we receive the show. Due to the topical nature of this show which is so very near to live, this kind of early warning is not possible.

An idea, not sure whether it's feasable though. For delayed episodes, populate CU with the banner (not sure what to call it) stating that it might be delayed , similar to those 1 min banners that said 'series wil return on bla bla'. When it gets delivered, replace the banner with the actual series. Not everyone will/can go to the forum to check for possible delays

They seem to be moving more in this direction, see: Missing on Explora (post #1396)
