ITV 3 +1
Tuesday 1 January 2019 8:30PM

David Lindsay is totally missing the point here
Or doesnt he understand what we are saying

Many times I have found something I want to watch or record on ITV3 but I find I have missed the start

So I go to ITV3+!
BUT WITH ITV3+1 THE TRANSMISSION CAN STOP AT ANY TIME USUALLY ON THE HOUR
NO ADVANCE INFORMATION IS GIVEN
Tonight it stopped at 8pm and restarted at 9pm
Other recordings may stop at midnight

I WOULD PREFER IF ITV3+1 CEASED TO EXIST

What is worse if I start to watch (or record) a programme which disappears before the end it would be better if I hAd NOT started wtaching (or recording)

The one certainty is ITV3+! is totally unreliable

David Lindsay's solution in all the cases quoted above is to watch ITV3

Like the Irishman the advice seems to be f I were you I wouldnt start from here
In other words if you have missed the start of a programme on ITV3 I wouldnt bother attempting to watch it on ITV3+1 because there is absolutely no guarantee you will be able to see the end of that programme

AS IT HAPPENS Tonight I was fortunate I was able to swich to Freesat ITV3+1 during the period it was not being transmitted on Freeview (Poirot The Clapham Cook)
