I am not sure if this was also in the original, but at the time normally
occupied for an ad break the whole program jumped back about three minutes
and went over it again.
The adverts never appeared at all.
Has anyone seen this before, one supposes that the file triggering of
content in some automated system did not get updated correctly somewhere.
I bet that cost somebody some money.
NCIS ie the most recent series they are showing.

That episode has been shown before with exactly the same "jump back".

So what is going on then, one supposes nobody at the station ever watches
their output then.

It says new in the program guide if its been on before is this some new
meaning of new of which I Am unaware.

That sort of error would really annoy me if I were in charge of output.

I'm sure it was where adverts normal would have gone.

They say new when it is new to that channel rather than indicating that
it was not screened before.

A little unfair these days, as many of the programs are the same imports
that of the channels also show, but the main good part is that they do
bother to audio describe a lot of their output unlike others who when it
looks like they might need to the rename their station.

Oh really, surely this then should say New to...
That would be acceptable and this should be at the end of the string. Were
not these people told about alpherbetic sorting. or are they the sort of
people who files all their cds of bands under 'The'

the worst thing here is that having New before the first showing and not
before a same-week repeat means that your PVR can't resolve a clash by
recording the repeat because it doesn't think its the same program

I was watching this on Channel 5 (not +1) and saw the jump back (about 4 mins
worth), slightly confusing. Thought the Topfield had glitched

However this is the first time these episodes of NCIS (Season 13/Episode 6:
"Viral") are being shown on Channel 5 and it's related ilk (Spike/5USA)
so which channel was it shown on before?

Do you mean when it was shown on UK "pay channels" (e.g. Sky) or when it
was shown originally in America?

Well they could apologise and edit it for the repeat. Attention to detail
etc.
