Incorrect program descriptions

Postby BillK » Mon Feb 13, 2017 4:00 pm

Is there an email address to contact with bad program descriptions?

The current description for the PixL film Friend Request in the VoD area, which should be something like:

Samantha, a young woman, frustrated by her unsuccessful blind dates, stumbles into a photo exhibition and sees and likes the photographer. She writes him an email. However, the email is intercepted by the photographer's son, who uses his father's identity to arrange a date for his widowed father, because he does not like his father's blonde manager and fears that she could become his stepmother.

is incorrectly labeled with the description for the 2013 film Friend Request:

A team of two detectives is tasked with apprehending a crazed, online psycho who tracks down and lures victims via a popular social media site.

Just a little different there. :D

Guide data comes from a contracted service, not Dish. It often has out of date info (like still listing actors that left a show the previous year), don't know why they don''t correct it.

We get the guide info from a 3rd part who gets it from the station itself.

What channels were "deleted"?

In this case, the program description is correct when the movie shows on PixL but is incorrect for the VOD version.

They are getting the data from rottentomatoes.com and they have been for the past two months. Normally they get their descriptions from zap2it.com (Gracenote) but this seems to be an error. Hopefully they can provide a fix for this ASAP
