Default Incorrect season number for Ancient Aliens on 186

186 History Channel is currently running season 12 of Ancient Aliens.
The CU+ version is calling it season 10.

I've got no idea which of them is correct. A search reveals that it is only one season currently being shown by the channel and CU+ info also confirms that the premiere broadcast day being Fridays is correct.

Hello
CU+ is right in this instance. History is one of the channels using the international numbering system supplied by our new data supplier. However, their system is in conflict with the channel's supplied numbering. We have asked them to revert to the channel numbering for both History and Crime and Investigation. Ancient Aliens will be updated this afternoon. We apologise for the inconvenience caused.

There may still be a problem.

Tonight's premiere for this week is now labelled as S10/E1 with that episode's synopsis.
E1 was broadcast last Friday, has the channel decided to start again under the circumstances or is it a resultant oversight by the EPG team?

Hello

According to our records, episode 1 did not air last week. We don't have any airings on Ancient Aliens for the last two weeks. Airing in the 20:15 slot last week was The Cars that Made America. Tonight should be the premiere of the new season.
Edit: I suspect you're referring to Catch Up Plus, in this case I think they pulled the trigger a week early (probably based on an earlier schedule).

Strange. I presumed it had been aired for two reasons;
  • CU+ was already offering S10/E1 days ago, that's how I got to see it.
  • Until the season number was changed last night, the entry for tonight had been labelled as S12/E2.

History is airing 'Forged by the Gods' as episode 1 of season 10 in SA, so we've updated to match their listings (in the US this episode did air as episode 2 of season 12, which is what our data supplier was sending us). Going forward we will only schedule series as the channel supplies them to avoid this kind of confusion.
My answer on Catch Up is above.

Ok, all makes sense now. Thanks for helping us to understand.

On the other side of the coin... sometime since Friday (a week early) we've also had S10E2 on CU+.

Nice for us viewers, but I would rather lose that in the hope that more at MC learn to pay attention and correct things in good time... :-/

My involvement with this ends here.
