Why doesn't Animal Planet lineup correspond with my guide?

    I'm looking for episodes of "North Woods Law" on Animal Planet and the website says that there should be plenty of episodes on starting Thursday, January 24th, but when I go into the guide to set the DVR it's some other show:


    What gives? I can't find it at all in the guide scrolling forward as far as I can go. Shouldn't Animal Planet's programming be the same no matter what you're watching it on (Dish, DirecTV, cable, etc...?)

    You would think, but Dish and most other providers get their guide data from Tribune Media and it is very possible that Tribune either has not received updated guide info from Animal Planet or have not sent updated guide information to dish and the other providers.

    It's shows up in the Directv guide, all new episode from 4pm to 9pm and repeats from 10pm to 4am on Thursday Jan 24, I don't know about Dish.

    That's because DISH uses Tribune Broadcasting for their EPG info. And they have sucked for years. They have to be the worst source of programming info on the planet. Because of their bad info, I spend more time messing with timers than watching what did get recorded, by the grace of God.

    Just set the whole season to record! Guess I'll know to just wait and see next time.
