Setanta schedule update-update

Update and correction (below):

Quick followup to my posting Saturday about Setanta's frustrating schedule problems;

Setanta rep Jessica France writes me:

Some of the Canadian co's were using the US schedule on their tv guides. You can find an accurate schedule on www.setanta.com and choose "Canadian schedule". We are ironing out some of the kinks in our broadcasting, thus the freeview period. By the time the freeview period is over, most everything should be ironed out. Thanks for your patience.

Well, I'm glad they're looking at the problem. But the link to the Setanta website still isn't cause for confidence just yet. There isn't any "Canadian schedule." There is a link to "North America," and that link takes you to the, quote, "Schedule for the Setanta Sports channel available in the US."

Mea culpa. I got it sorted out. The Setanta page offers a "North America" option that takes you to the North America index page.

On that page Setanta offers you three options: TV, Broadband, and Premium PPV.

If you click on "TV" it takes you to the United States schedule. That is the wrong page. So, back up to the North America index page again.

At the top of the page, right under the Setanta logo banner, you will see a link to the "Canadian Schedule."

Bookmark that link:

It's very confusing, but it's there. I'm not sure the problems will be solved yet, but I'll keep my eye on it.

(Hat-tip to commenter "Welshman" who sorted me right.)

Actually there is a "Canadian Schedule":

As that link might be hard to follow just go to the North America home page. In the menu at the top of the screen you will see reference to the Canadian schedule.

By the way, Jessica France sent me the exact same reply, word for word.

My question is this, are we going to get the PPV offerings on bell that they are getting on Dish? If you look at this weekend there is Ireland vs Italy, SA vs Scotland , and Wales vs France all on Dish PPV but I don't see anything on Expressvu's website, argh frusterating. Also will we even get the opportunity to purchase the $199.00 RWC package in Canada? Nice job on the Setanta follow up though!!
