Fear the Walking Dead EPG issue

Looks like the EPG data for AMC HD 381 channel was wrong yesterday.

The Entry in the EPG for Fear the Walking Dead  at 10:05pm Sunday 1st May describes the episode as Season 7 , Ofelia. . I believe it was actually a repeat of  the previous  episode Season 7, Mouring Cloak . more importantly the Series CRID and Programme CRID data indicated it was a new episode in the series and recorded it  ( when in reality it was last week’s episode . It is AMC normal practice to premiere the Fear the Walking Dead episodes in the early hours of Monday mornings eg 2am.That episode is normally rerun on Monday evenings and at times on Tuesdays/Fridays/Saturdays/Sundays. so it would be expected that the Sunday night episode would be a rerun BUT it seems incorrectly described as a the next new episode which was actually broadcast   at 2am in the early hours today  2nd May. So the actual broadcast programming on AMC is what I would expect BUT the EPG data incorrect.

The effect of this error would be that people recording the series would get a repeat (albeit wrongly described)  episode and miss an episode as the real new episode  in the series would not be recorded as the system believes it it has recorded it already.

Re: Fear the Walking Dead EPG issue

Hi, @zulu17 I received the following update from the TV team.

There was an error in the schedule provided by the broadcaster which was reflected in the EPGs we distributed. The broadcaster has confirmed that all future airings are correct. The backwards EPG has been corrected and resent.

Many thanks for highlighting this.
