Default SS Overflow channel news

It's now been moved to channel 198. Looks more permanent as the labelling is more specific now.

Sometime this Saturday - the track cycling event at the UCI Championships in Hong Kong live.

For Sat. 22 April - there's a BPL match on from 15:50, Hull City vs Watford.
Nothing mentioned for the Sunday at this stage, there has usually been as well but maybe overflow is not needed this Sunday.

I'm not planning to post more, this should be enough to alert everyone here to keep a regular eye on the channel and I'm sure other SS channels must display their own alerts about its use.

Thumbs up

New developments - we now have THREE SuperSport Overflow channels!

A new channel 196 has been added, and it's being used with 198 and now 199 again for various sporting events this Sunday.
Way to go SS

Note that only 198 appears to have a HD feed at this stage but that too changes from time to time.

I'm most certainly not complaining about these channels but can a way not be found for a channel to remain in your Favourites if it got deleted and added again? Just like with channel 109 (movie pop-up), I have to re-add channel 199 to my Favourites every time it gets dropped and added again. If it were not for online posts like this one I would not pick up that the channel is active again while I remain on my Favourites selection.

So this is the feedback from our platform team. They say they fully understand your frustration, but unfortunately, they use the same capacity to test the next launch. So they have to close off the channel to customers i to do end-to-end testing on our side.

PS: channel 198 has not been closed off for the SS overflow content for the last few weeks and will only close off on the 19th June 2017, so where possible we do leave it open

Thank you for the feedback. It's a pity but I understand.
