Hi Adrian,

As you are aware we take our information directly from SBS and these are the series and ep details they have supplied us with (and it is the same on their website).  Possibly you may need to contact them directly if you think they are in error.
Regards
Gai

@md if sbs provide wrong details but you have the opportunity to correct them / add episode details like name & description shouldnt your team do so?

If we had unlimited resources we would, but we don't. That is why we rely on the help of the forum.

What SBS is calling episodes 12 & 13 from season 4 appear to actually be episodes 5 (W's Talk, Baby) & 6 (In It to Win It) from season 7, according to IMDb.

That is true but we are trapped in a long period of using the SBS choices of series and episodes and the task of going back through it to line it up with IMBD is onerous, and for what gain on the part of the vast majority of our subscribers? Our subscribers read the press and TV guides and see the series and episodes exactly as SBS promote them with no knowledge whatsoever of IMDB.

Just gone to SBS via google & got this as an example. On ice where the episode name would be is s04e12. Hope that makes more sense as to why i raised this in the first place

The reply was more to aeb001's "i have no idea where we are actually up to with this show".

Hi all,
I have updated the two eps tomorrow night to reflect the episode name but they will still have the SBS numbering ie S4 E12 & E13.  I have also asked SBS if they could add these episode names going forward and to be consistent as some shows have names and others only Series and Ep numbers.  Not holding my breath but we'll see!

Thanks Gai. Didnt realise they were adding the names to their website but not the feed to you. Thats just plain lazy from them.

I don't know if it is laziness, ignorance or capriciousness, but SBS has quite a bit of form recently for creative rebadging of a number of shows. I've seen it and pointed it out with some of Tony Robinson's shows, a number of train journey shows, and Agatha Christie's Criminal Games. The latter was a renumbering of series and episodes that did not accord with previously published information.

I think I've made the point previously that this to me is unacceptable behaviour for a publicly funded broadcaster. One can only hope that someone, somewhere, is in a position to influence SBS to the extent that whoever is responsible is replaced by someone who understands the value of, and adheres to, consistency with publicly available metadata.

as long as episodes names are posted by Ice giving me something to reference against I'll be happy. Raymond your welcome to petition 7 while your at it to get them to use the correct episode details for Pawn Stars, etc etc etc. Jus about every network has at least one show they screw up royally with season / episode numbering
