Planet America
« on: July 09, 2020, 12:51:23 PM »
Planet America is currently on a 2 week sabbatical. However, Planet America is still listed in the IceTV schedule for Friday night. Both shows return on the 22nd & 24th, respectively.

Also, the Friday night show is actually called "Planet America's Fireside Chat" and has its own iView webpage:

https://iview.abc.net.au/show/planet-america-s-fireside-chat

Whereas, "Planet America" iView webpage is:

https://iview.abc.net.au/show/planet-america

Both are listed as separate, distinct shows on both iView and in the ABC TV guide and IMHO, they should also be listed as separate, distinct shows on IceTV as well.

Please fix both issues.

Hi Bazza,
I see this was on ABC News channel and it has been corrected now.  The reason we call it Planet America (with Fireside Chat being noted) is so users who have set Planet America as a series recording don't miss these shows.  To make a change mid series would upset some users recordings.
Cheers Gai

Hi Gai,

It should never have been added to IceTV in the manner that it has been.

You could take advantage of the 2 week hiatus to fix the issue, by sending a email indicating that as of 24th the show name will be updated and a new series recording will need to be added.

Another recent example, was "Mystery Road - The Series". While I'm aware there is a movie of the same name; on which the series is based, the ABC never called either season 1 or 2 by that name.

The whole point of IceTV is to provide a curated and accurate EPG.

Having said that, I'm also aware that some Aussie TV networks sometimes change the name of the show; with SBS the biggest offender, and in this case, then IceTV has no choice but to do the same.
