British Eurosport gets EPG updates


by David Allen

The sports satellite channel, British Eurosport, will become the first broadcaster on the Sky platform to use accurate electronic programme guide (EPG) triggering to remove inconsistencies caused by programmes that over run.

The system has been designed by Red Bee Media, which also offers live updates for the BBC.

EPG issues have been the cause of complaint on numerous occasions, usually when there are live sporting events or breaking news stories.

Sometimes the EPG is not updated and those viewers who are expecting to record certain programmes, often on a series link, can find that there is an episode missing, which can be frustrating to say the least.

This system will prevent that from happening in the future because as the EPG is updated so will the series link and other programmes waiting to be recorded.
