Hi, the Mods will always need to know on which channel?

Scheduling queries are usually posted in the Broadcast Errors forum section, but maybe they can help here.

I found the scheduled broadcast on the EPG and added the season to my recording schedule. I didn't take much notice of the channel - one of the Mnets - Next thing The Simpsons season 28 has simply disappeared from my recording schedule.

I think the last season was on Vuzu Amp but not 100% sure.

Looks like it was M-Net Family in this case. Melanie has since made a new thread in the other section.

If it was meant to be on M-Net Family then the disappearance of the channel is probably to blame for the change - so it will most likely then surface on VUZU which is replacing M-Net Family for compact Subscribers.

A bit strange that the show premiered on a non-premium channel like M-Net Family?

Good point, maybe it was just an initial scheduling mistake.

End of last year we got the first half of season 28 on Vuzu 2 episodes back to back at 17:00&17:30. It hasn't returned yet with the other half.

Yes s28 first half has been repeating on (vuzu, Vuzu Amp. And Mnet family)

Last year(last season) they did the same we just have to wait for it to return

JeanP is correct. Season 28 is currently scheduled to return from its mid-season break to Vuzu Amp on 13 April at 17:00 (note dates and times are subject to change) with episode 14. With the closure of M-Net Family it naturally won't be returning to the channel.

Thanks everyone - sorry to hear that another channel is biting the dust. "My channels" is getting smaller and smaller.
