Starting today 5th November 2016, UKTV-24 will keep certain shows for 60 days after scheduled time! 60 Day Catch-up!!!! This is a huge and ground breaking improvement!
Why is this such an important change? The answer is that over the last 3-4 years we have noticed that our members depend more on On demand TV than live TV. The thought of tonnes of live TV channels is nice however we must remember what we are doing here at UKTV! We provide UK TV to people who want to watch OUTSIDE of the UK and therefore Live TV is not always the solution!
So how will this work?
For starters, it will take the first 60 days to fully work, however we will manually add some shows that have already been archived in our tests over the last 60 days. The criteria for a show to get the 60 day stamp is that it must be watched by at least one person during its normal 7 day period. This means that outside of the normal 7 day line up not every show will have the 60 day stamp however it should ensure that the shows people watch will be saved!
As for finding these historic UK TV shows, we will not be going back further than the normal 7 days with the TV guide. These shows with the 60 day stamp will be found by searching by name or will be reccomended to you below another episode of the same or similar show.
