So when it says 07, it means till the end of the month, right?
I viewed the source for Good Doctor, by just right-clicking anywhere on the page and selecting "View Source". (I'm on Opera). It took me to this window.
By the way, to view the source, if your browser doesn't make it easy, just use this URL
view-source: (and after the column, without a space, just paste the URL of the main page of the show).
Then I made a search (CTRL+F) with the word "2017"
and I found:
Does that mean only till the 26th? Or was it the time when I retrieved the info?
Because down below I found this:
time this view was rendered in UTC raynor.timestamp = '2017-07-26T18:47:45+00:00'
Yes, it must be the timestamp.
Then I searched for the word "availab" which gave me both "available" and "availability".
I did this for Queen for Seven Days and I found:
Hmm, so they only bought a licence for two years for that one?
For Good Doctor, it was
I also had a look at some other shows. All of them say they are until July 26th, 2019.
This is FISHY. It's not possible that they all end at the same date.
So now the question is, which information should we believe? The one written on the page source or the messages from viki to Channel Managers? On the other hand, some of the shows were supposed to end on July 16th and they are still there, at least for QCs.
All this being in the dark is very unsettling.
At least I just found Good Doctor on another site, so I'll be, at least, able to watch it till the end, whatever happens. There are all those annoying popups and chesty Russian girls, but the moment the video starts, there are no ads to interrupt, so one should be thankful.
