Can someone urgently check what is happening with the coverage of today’s premier league match which should be on Sky Sports Extra Sd and HD .
although showing as scheduled on the BT TV app with programming from noon record cannot be set as the Youview EPG does not have the programmes scheduled in its EPG or in its Youview app.
I wondered the same thing so I checked the Sky Sports schedule
Turns out they're showing the Bournemouth v Spurs game on Sky Sports Premier League but not on Sky Sports Main Event which means it isn't included in the BT Sports + Sky package.
First time I've seen this happen and it's not great.
The issue does not relate to the Sky Sports Main Event . the Bournemouth v Tottenham game was scheduled for the Sky Sports Extra (SD /HD ) channel. the BT TV app TV app guide clearly was showing this in the schedule for Sky Sports Extra 416 and Sky Sports Extra HD 438.
@Robin67 Sky Sports Extra brings you the rest of the live Premier League games available on Sky Sports , which are not available through Sky Sports Main Event.
So there are at least two issues here .. one the inaccuracy of the EPG on Youview box and app as it did not list the programme as being on the guide , which meant that my desire to set the recording remotely using the BT TV app could not work.
Secondly I believe the match was actually broadcast on the Sky Sports Extra HD channel 438 although the prematch buildup and kickoff was missed as coverage appears to have begun after 59 seconds of play so probably from about 12:31pm real time. So there is a broadcast transmission issue as well.
Hi @zulu17 ,
Thanks for posting. I'm really sorry if this caused any problems for you. I can appreciate how it might have done. I've reported this back to the BTTV guys. I know it's a bit late in the day but hopefully we won't see a repeat of the problem going forward.
