I may be in the minority, but my main priority is the EPG being as accurate as possible. I don't think this task is as easy as many assume and hopefully, the recent disruptions will soon be behind us.

I don't know that you are, but I am already on record as saying that I regard Coming Soon (or New Shows rebadged) and What's On This Week as being as important to me as a subscriber as an accurate EPG and I don't think I am alone in that. Let's just say that we would all like to have as accurate and up-to-date an EPG as possible and intelligent advice as to what's upcoming on the TV.

... People are posting, but it's being ignored
Two people have posted new content there in the last three weeks, both of them today.
People have been posting new stuff since 6 weeks ago - all ignored, while they post the 18 year old Sex and The City to Coming Soon

I think I need a break, they're really starting to get to me

Neither. We're just about the finish the first series, it's been on every week for the last 2 or 3 months.

It's not actually "still", it was added back in the last couple of days.

I've slept on this.  :-X We all know that this time of year there isn't much to watch, there isn't even much "coming soon". 

I think the trouble is that IceTV is going for quantity instead of quality.

The list is so long, full of rubbish that, should there be something there worth noting, I'll probably miss it

Actually, I happier with the longer list. What people want to record is subjective, what one person thinks is rubbish, another person will watch repeats of. I don't think coming soon should be overly curated to just have a subjective list of what's good.

My concern has always been the balance between what was on there vs what was being missed. If the price of including the shows that I want to record is that it also has to record what others want to record, then that's ok with me.

There is also a recommendations section that could be better used to highlight "good" shows.

Then maybe we would all be happier if there were two sections in "Coming Soon" - Old S%$# and New S%$#.

Can you point me to where I can find the "recommendations section"? I can find Most Popular, and I don't use smart phone apps.

I don't want the old stuff. I think the only time a repeat is worth listing is if it hasn't been on for 10/15 plus years or before digital TV. I don't think domestic blitz from 2 years ago should be flagged as coming soon. My comments where more about rubbish vs quality being very subjective.

I don't use the website so ice no idea where it is. This week's What's On email was basically the same as the recommendations for this week.

"Recommendations" is only in the app. Previously it overlapped with, but often wasn't identical with, the What's on this Week(end) emails. The most recent one was exactly the same as the corresponding What's on this Week email.

I still miss Xmas in England when we bought the double edition of Radio Times and planned all the 2 weeks TV, what I would have to watch and what would be taped (only 3 channels made it easier but still had to miss some stuff). Xmas was the best time of the year for TV, but you couldn't go outside...
