Here is something I've been working on for a couple of days now (and a logical extension of the homepage right hand calendar) - a fully fledged TV Schedule page. Once it's done - it'll have its own link on our main site menu.
Check it out and let me know how you feel about it - what else do you want to see in there, do you find it useful?
Having 2 lists on the Episodes page was a feature requested for a long time now. Some users even reported they're using 2 accounts on Next Episode to be able to keep track of their Acquired and Watched episodes.
For Premium members, in the Episodes tracking page, there is now a "Show Acquired Status" toggle which adds an acquired status checkbox to all episodes. Clicking the checkbox (or the season episode number of the show) will mark it as Acquired, and clicking on the [-] will mark it watched as before.
Check it out and let me know how it works for you and if you're happy with the implementation!
Update: Added filter to switch between All Episodes, Not Acquired and Only Acquired!
Ok, the controversial settings are now free for everyone. If you don't know what this is - check out Part 1, 2, 3.
You can now turn on the 1 day offset and turn off the channel timezone correction in settings/air dates.
It's not that the handful of adblocking complainers convinced me to make it available for everyone - I created the issue in the first place (by letting users get used to what was effectively a faulty system - and then taking it away from them). The poll result showed me clearly that there are many users displeased with the change and I'm definitely not ok with that and all the controversy and negativity this sparked.
Ok, if you had issues before - check it out, let me know if everything is good now or describe your problem if not.
Ok, as the comments to the yesterday's post ended up in explanations to each user individually what to do, here's the short version of what happened and what to do about it:
Timezones and air dates/times on Next Episode were off. They were fixed yesterday. You're seeing the Homepage and the Calendar lists according to your timezone.
So if a show airs in the US at 8pm on a Sunday, but you're in Europe - most likely this will be the following Monday for you, in the early AM hours.
If you want to see the shows in your lists the next day, not when they aired - you can offset those lists by 1 day in the homepage settings and in the calendar settings and/or simply change your timezone to a US one.
In show details, if the show timezone is different than yours - you'll see Local Date and Local Time for Next and Previous episode so that you'll know exactly when it airs in your local time.
Let me know if that clears it up and if you have any issues and suggestions! If something is off it'll be fixed!
We've always had some issues with incorrect dates for some users. All should be fixed as of today. Please go to your settings and check if your timezone is the correct one (most likely the GMT offset will be the correct one but you'll have to update your location). Here is what's changed:
Homepage lists (Watchlist, Today/Tomorrow/Yesterday, right bar calendar) and the site Calendar should now correctly arrange shows according to your timezone AND the show channel timezone.
in Episodes, the episodes should appear right after they air. This worked well on a day level before, but wasn't as accurate, especially for some users and shows.
On series details page, the countdown is vastly improved, getting local and channel timezone into account, giving you the exact countdown till air time. Also, if local timezone is different than the show channel timezone - a local Date and Time is being displayed for Previous and Next episode.
Nothing revolutionary for most users, but vast changes under the hood, so please let me know if all looks and works ok for you! If not - describe the issue and I'll fix it ASAP!
