FIXPlay still needs to Catch-up
Asleep at the wheel? Nine is proving too slow at adding TV shows to its new online Catch-Up service.
The Nine Network launched its new online Catch-Up service FIXPlay on Monday promising a whiz-bang library of shows through its NineMSN portal -but it appears to be asleep at the driver’s wheel since then.
A number of titles announced as part of the launch are yet to be added to the platform.
They include Spooks, Torchwood, Day of the Triffids, Primeval and more.
More importantly, episodes that have aired on Nine this week for The Vampire Diaries, Fringe and Gossip Girl are yet to be added. Last night’s Getaway and Sea Patrol aren’t available either.
Nine needs to realise the basic principle of any Catch-Up service is that if you didn’t see the show on air, you can jump online and watch it legally. At the very least such shows should be added the next morning.
Earlier this week FIXPlay told TV Tonight, the titles issued at launch were those confirmed to run on FIXPlay but that content was continually being ingested into the system.
The question now is when?
