"Good question Alan,  Might need to ask Prime directly, at this stage you will need to manually scan for it on some receivers but will not populate within the EPG  Josh"

Prime +1

Any one have any idea when Prime TV will get their +1 channel properly assigned to Freeview??It has been available to view for months but has no EPG or assigned Freeeview channel number.I do realise that PrimeTV are not terribly technology competent. After all, it did take over two years to get the parental ratings (PGR, AO etc) to appear in the correct field in the Freeview EPG, rather than just being tacked on to the end of the program description.See More

"Thanks Josh, It still intrigues me as to why The AM Show needs a date in its EPG listing. The Breakfast show on TV 1 doesn't seem to require a date in the episode title, nor does the 6pm News on TV1 and TV3, Prime News at 5:30pm, The Project on…"

"The times, they are a changing. TV3 have updated their EPGs for The AM Show yet again...  The EPG for TV3+1 now is a single 3 hour listing identical to the TV3 listing for The AM Show.  Common sense has won the day. Go TV3! In addition to…"

"Well! What do you know? As of today, and onwards, the TV3 EPG lists 'The AM Show' as a single listing from 6 to 9am, instead of the old three separate one hour listings. And what is even better? I no longer get the message that my series…"
