Krugie, I am in complete agreement. The level of repeats on the BBC channels on DSTV are completely unacceptable. There is not enough new content to fill one BBC channel, let alone 4. It’s a complete insult to DSTV viewers, and it’s getting more and more difficult to justify paying R900 a month for this. My wife and I are huge fans of Deal or No Deal, but BBC Brit have destroyed our enjoyment of the show. The same 150 or so episodes in Season 4 have been shown in a loop about 3 or 4 times now. When my wife contacted BBC South Africa about it, she was fobbed off with lame excuses about how viewers love the chance to watch episodes they might have missed. I must also mention that the 6:15pm episode of Deal or No Deal is repeated FOUR times the next day! More than enough chances for people to catch up. And why should loyal viewers have to suffer through years of repeats to give others a chance to catch up? They should just admit that they DO NOT take their audience feedback seriously and will do whatever they like. I’m also not interested in their standard response of highlighting the sprinkling of 2 or 3 new shows coming up that we are supposed to be grateful for. I won’t even get started on endless repeats of Pointless, QI, Top Gear, etc. And from Monday I see they are repeating “Impossible” YET AGAIN from Season 1, Episode 1. DSTV, we need answers – and urgently.
