SABC: THIRD OF OUTSIDE BROADCAST TRUCKS NOT USABLE

Wednesday, April 16, 2014

Duck Dynasty starting on History on Monday 21 April - but daffy duck scheduling is sure to get DStv subscribers up in arms.


Duck Dynasty is starting its first season in South Africa on History (DStv 186) on Monday 21 April at 20:30 with multiple episodes and highly erratic and confusing scheduling which will see DStv subscribers struggle to keep up in order not to miss any episodes.

Duck Dynasty which already finished its 5th season in America last month, is a reality show following a wealthy family of duck hunters.

The Duck Dynasty scheduling on History is completely crazy - it's a given that DStv subscribers are going to struggle to ensure they're not missing out on an episode.

Duck Dynasty will roll out with 4 new episodes on Monday 21 April at 20:30, 21:00, 21:25 and 21:55.

History will then show further new Duck Dynasty episodes on Monday 28 April at 21:25 and 21:55.

On Monday 5 May there will again be double Duck Dynasty episodes at 21:25 and 21:55.

Then, from Monday 12 May, Duck Dynasty gets reduced to only one episode at 21:25 on History on this date, as well as only one new episode on Monday 19 May and Monday 26 May.

In June, Duck Dynasty will stay with the one new episode per week, but the time slot changes slightly from 21:25 to 21:20.

Duck Dynasty in June will see one new episode on Monday 2 June, Monday 9 June,  Monday 16 June and Monday 23 June at 21:20.

On Monday 30 June there is again suddenly two Duck Dynasty episodes back to back at 21:20 and then at 21:45.
