Title: 70HD Perth is now simulcasting 7mate
Post by: rockets on April 06, 2019, 05:29:55 PM
I've noticed today that 7 Perth have switched 70 HD to be showing 7mate content and not 7 content. I can't find any announcement from 7 about the switch. I can only assume it's to broadcast AFL matches in HD on 7mate.  Ice EPG is showing 7 content for 70 HD.

Hi Rockets,

Cheers for the heads up, we have had the guide updated, so series recordings should now pick this up in HD.

Watch out for any 7/7HD recordings set to "HD only"!

It doesn't appear to have been correctly updated.
From 'My Week' Monday 8-Apr -
7:30pm

Scheduled to record as part of a series recording My Kitchen Rules ‘2019 - Ibby & Romel - Does Pride Come...’
7HD

Scheduled to record as part of a series recording AFL: Talking Footy
7mate

Both are defined with 'prefer high def.'.  Both are set for the wrong services.

It appears the change is only for today. The FTA guide from tomorrow onwards is back to usual programming of 7 simulcasting on 7HD, with 7mate not simulcasted.
Perhaps we're going to see this every time a game is on 7mate, this way Seven is honouring their commitment to the AFL of HD broadcasts.

Yep, it is just until Midnight tonight from what we can see.

It would definitely be tied to the AFL, mostly as it's a local Perth team game.

Hi grumpy_geoff

Many thanks for your note. I have switched over the 7HD for Perth so it is now showing 7Mate programming.

Have a lovely day,

IceTV has got 7mate and 7HD programming the same right up through Wednesday.  I doubt that's actually happening past today (Friday).

Hi grumpy_geoff,

Many thanks for your note. I have now switched 7HD back to show 7 programming. Unfortunately, when I make the change it can't be contained to just the one day so that's why you would have seen 7 programming on 7HD right through to Wednesday. Within the next 15 minutes you will see it showing 7Mate again.

Have a lovely day,

Tiphanee

Hi Tiphanee,
 
Perhaps with the method you know, but Daniel Hall managed it on 6-April.

Any reason the Perth 7HD EPG content wasn't updated for yesterday's programming to reflect it was simulcasting 7mate programming?

Perth, Friday 10-May
7mate (/ 7HD)
5:00pm AFL: Friday Night Countdown ‘2019 - Round 8 - Sydney V Essendon’
5:30pm AFL: Championship Season ‘2019 - Round 8 - St Kilda V West Coast’

The St Kilda V West Coast game is being played the next day (Sat).

Additionally, for Friday's guide you have 7mate Perth simulcasted on 7HD Perth; whereas I believe the simulcasting is for the next day (Sat) only.

Hi grumpy_geoff,

Many thanks for your note. I'll take another look at Friday and adjust accordingly.

Have a lovely day,

Hi again,

I've looked at the  and have switched 7HD back to reflect 7 programming for Friday. It was adjusted over the weekend as West Coast are playing on Friday night. You should see the change reflected on the guide in about 10 minutes.

Thanks again for highlighting the change.

Cheers,

Tiphanee

Nup, those two particular teams are not, as I previously stated -
Perth, Friday 10-May
7mate (/ 7HD)
5:00pm AFL: Friday Night Countdown ‘2019 - Round 8 - Sydney V Essendon’
5:30pm AFL: Championship Season ‘2019 - Round 8 - St Kilda V West Coast’

The St Kilda V West Coast game is being played the next day (Sat).

There aren't two games on Friday night.
Sydney and Essendon are playing on Friday night.  There's no other game, as St Kilda and West Coast are playing on Saturday.
You still have an incorrect Friday night AFL listing for Perth.

Hi there grumpy_geoff,

Many thanks for your note once again. The incorrect game was scheduled but has now been amended. You will see the change in the next 10-15 minutes.

Kind regards,

Note the change this Saturday (17-Aug) in Perth to have 7HD simulcast 7mate programming.

Thanks for that grumpy_geoff. It's been awhile since an AFL WA team has been on 7Mate. I'll correct shortly and remind the team to let me know when it occurs again in the future.

Cheers,

Tiphanee
