The BOX SETS EXPIRY DATES LIST is back!

The Box Sets Expiry Dates List

 

Due to a post by @bigsmile01 I thought I would reintroduce the Box Sets Expiry Dates list, but in a new way that makes it easier for me to maintain.

 

I will provide a list of Box Sets from the Featured page only that are due to expire within the next 3 months. The first post will cover from July 1st to September 30th. 

 

I have Sky+HD, so all my information is taken from there, but the dates given should be okay for Sky Q users too. Dates are for HD downloads unless the series is SD only. 

 

This time I won't be saying if the Box Set has a Deletion Date after you have downloaded it. A Deletion Date is different from an Expiry Date, but more often than not, there isn't a Deletion Date.

 

 

How do you find out if there is one?

 

Whilst downloading or after it is has finished:

 

  1. Go to your Planner
  2. Highlight the show & press i  ( info ) on your remote.
  3. At the top of the screen, you will see information about the download & this is where a Deletion Date will be, if applicable. 

 

If it doesn't have a Deletion Date then you can keep the Box Set for as long as you wish & can delete it in your own time.

 

If it does have a Deletion Date then it will be deleted from your Planner on that date.

 

Generally, a Deletion Date will be the same as the Expiry Date, different from the Expiry Date or will be 1 year from the download date. With Sky Q, I believe you have a 30-day notice for when a Box Set is due to expire.

Re: BOX SETS EXPIRY DATES is back!

For clarification of Deletion Dates & what they look like, here are 2 pictures below.

 

 

1) The first one shows the Box Set for Kiss Me First which does have a Deletion Date (circled in red).

2) The second one shows the Box Set for Game Of Thrones which does not have a Deletion Date.

Re: BOX SETS EXPIRY DATES RETURNS - ALL NEW FORMAT

Try this for a laugh- go into box sets featured tab, open Games of Thrones and download S1 ep1 (or any random one), then go into planner and delete it but leave in the Deleted section.

Now go back into box sets, select the same entry and check the box set expiry date.

 

Can even get it to show a deletion date if you use search to find that episode, even though it doesn't have a deletion date.

Why would the finale season of Boardwalk Empire expire sooner then all the others? It's not like the final season is on Catch Up and the rest on Box Sets.

Re: BOX SETS EXPIRY DATES RETURNS - ALL NEW FORMAT

  @JonW42 This happens more often than you'd probably think. I know it's odd but as with all Box Sets, it's down to rights issues & how long Sky can have the rights for each individual season. It's quite possible that on the 12th September the date for S5 will be renewed & will be the same as S1 -4. I've seen that happen many times, but it's not guaranteed.

Can you please forgo the graphic? I see your message before the graphic shows and the first time I had to wait to see what it was. You can use a large bold colored font instead of the graphic. Thanks.
