Airdates: Early previews

Postby hgkkcnvjd » Fri Dec 28, 2018 11:18 pm

Re: Syfy's Deadly Class, for instance, they're airing S01E01 early Sunday Dec. 30 at 10 PM, prior to its official Jan. 16 premiere (it's already streaming online btw). Should the Originally Aired date on TVDB be Dec. 30 or Jan. 16? What's the policy on these situations?

1) Regarding the availability of an episode, the airing date prevails over the streaming date ('First Aired', 'Originally Aired')

Thus, S01E01 will be originally aired on Jan. 16.

2) Moreover, in this particular instance, Dec. 30 airing of Deadly Class is "A special preview of the SYFY series."
Rather than S01E01, it looks more like a Special - we'll see tomorrow ;)

The Futon Critic is listing the airing as 101, which I was going off of. I guess we'll see.
