Not really. Just read the listings and record/bookmark what is worth seeing.

Efficient rather than omniscient, I would say. Nice of you to say, though!

Ha, ha! Whilst true, programmes listed as ‘repeats’ are those that have not been shown in this country before.

Free-To-Air premieres as far as I'm concerned for those on Pick.

A show is being classed as a repeat (or not) is not dependant on whether the viewer has seen it before.

Must have a lot of spare time to read the listings for all the channels…

Whatever works for you.

They are ‘New to Pick’ but they are effectively repeats.

You could have fooled me. I suppose the amount of time people spend on this forum could be viewed as a more valuable use of time, but it probably explains why they can never find anything suitable to watch!

Considering this is a cable forum, it seems to me that some may have got their priorities wrong.

If they were simply the first time on Pick TV and had been on another Free-To-Air already that's one thing, but my point is that it's not quite the same thing when it's the first time a show has been on Free-To-Air TV. Not everyone has Pay TV.

The comment was made in defence of channels that show repeats as they might be new to some hence being a great service for some . Any way l would rather watch once l know it's not cancelled mid season
