I have found that programs on TVNZ with an & ampersand in the title cannot be chosen as nothing happens.

Ampersand is a special character in HTML and this will be what the problem is caused by. 

In HTML, the ampersand character (“&”) declares the beginning of an entity reference (a special character). If you want one to appear in text on a web page you should use the encoded named entity “ & ”

Could this be fixed by searching for programs with " & " and replace the 3 characters with “ & ”

Hi Steve

To understand, are you searching on the TVNZ App or Freeview Ondemand app? 

Thanks
