Unless there's been a mistake it looks like The Big Bang Theory will be on yet another break, at least next week - last week's episode is scheduled for that slot in the EPG.

Reminder - many have 8 day EPGs, if the info is available earlier we need to hear about it at least 9 days before, please.

----------

@Forumites:
My household is starting to think that it's better to wait for close-to-the-U.S. series to later arrive on 115 M-Net City. Not sure if all M-Net series make it to there though, and the future late night edgy ones might not at all, don't know...
The only other exception for viewing these 101 supplied series would be with those that are made superstacked CU episodes (not CU+), which we would only start viewing a few weeks later.

Ok for those with enough patience and not that involved with the social media spoilers / need-to-discuss-live factors.
Any other thoughts or info about this?

There will be another break. According to Wikipedia, Episode 19 is only scheduled to be aired in the US next Thursday, making it impossible for us to see it until the following week.

The normal length of a full season is about 23 episodes, with most shows finishing their run at the end of May. 23 weeks back from the end of May is the beginning of January, so if any show were to start on DStv then, initially it would be 3-4 months behind, but will have caught up by the end season. So that would be my solution to ensure uninterrupted weekly viewing.

I don't find the need to avoid spoilers to be that strong a reason to have shows close to the US as I've never found it that difficult to not be spoiled. Although to be fair, I'm not a massive social media user.

However, the other reason for having shows close to the US is to avoid people choosing to watch through other means and not DStv as if they know that a show is out there then they may not be prepared to wait. And since my proposed scenario of starting in January does involve a waiting period, it may not be ideal.

This is going off-topic, but why did my previous post require approval by a moderator? I can't see anything about it that would necessitate that.

@Citanul - the auto moderate feature either picks up on language, or hyperlinks and then automatically places the post in moderation until one of us approves it.

I know that. I'm asking what specifically it was about my post as there are no hyperlinks and I can't spot anything I'd written that I would have thought would have triggered it.

'This is us' has been spoiled rotten for me somewhat. And that's from just reading the Opera mini news feed headlines.

Thanks. So there we have it, with just 3 of us we can see again that there's no certain one size fits all solution even after all this time to get to know its workings. Have to wonder how the various Americans go about it.

M-Net City's current and future content is too uncertain, and another channel to add to our own scheduling complexity, so no longer part of the idea.
We're now thinking about stockpile recordings from the start of new seasons, but just for the really problematic hot series. We always record backups anyway.
May do enough for a few people.

@Optimist keep an eye on Catch Up Plus during April - we're planning to superstack quite a few series. Will post more info when we have it.
Also Aletta hinted at our media showcase at the possibility of a pop-up channel that will help you to record your own box sets. No further info or dates available at this stage.
