I really thought that the whole idea of CU+ was to be able to get 'other" programs that do not come onto Catch Up or those episodes that have already expired from CU.
Thanks Elizabeth. We've checked with the team and this is a teething issue.
You should never see programmes listed in both Catch Up and Catch Up Plus on your DStv Explora.
Programmes may move to DStv Catch Up Plus once expired from normal Catch Up in order to give people more time to watch them. Thanks for alerting us.

Are there other shows that appear on the online Catch Up but are not on Explora Catch Up eventually going to be included in CU+ eg Bad Teacher is one that does not appear on CU but I know is on the online Catch Up. This has not as yet been added to CU+.

This I think is what Catch Up Plus would be really useful for, is if you miss a program that is not on Catch Up then you could download onto Catch Up +. Otherwise I really don't see the point of CU+.

The amount of time any episode can be available is limited by studio rights, so don't think CU+ will make a difference to that. It's mostly about offering extra titles, then you get to choose which of them to get and put on the remaining harddrive space available.

It just occurred to me that a feature that would be nice (I don't recall it being mentioned as available) would be something similar to Series Record - called "Series Downloading" or similar it would allow for automatic downloading of all episodes in a season that's on CU+.

Great idea!
