The episodes called 'Family Guy Season 18' in the FOX menu are actually all from Season 17.

Re: 'Family Guy Season 18' is Season 17

Hi @TellyTime 

 

I did flag this up before to a NowTV Staff Member and wasn't given a full explanation apart from it was the way Fox themselves number the seasons on the files when the content is automatically downloaded to the NowTV server's by Fox.

 

Here's one thread posted back in 2018.

Perhaps @Jason-C from the NowTV Team would like to expand on this further ?

Hi @schnapps @TellyTime 

 

Thanks for getting in touch.

 

If I remember correctly, this is related to how FOX broadcast and advertised "Season 1" of Family Guy in the UK. They broke it into 2 seasons.

 

Since then, all UK seasons are numbered ahead of what the US labels them as. eg. US "Season 2" is UK "Season 3".

 

Thanks,

Jason

Hi @Jason-C @schnapps

 

Thanks for the replies.

 

Interesting.

 

In the TV guides for Sky, Virgin & BT all of the episodes are correctly marked as Season 17. 

 

It's the programme title in NOW TV that says 'Family Guy Season 18' rather than simply 'Family Guy' as it should be, and the FOX website itself.

Hi @TellyTime 

 

That's certainly confusing! FOX directly maintain their catalogue with Sky, so the numbering of seasons and episodes come from them.

 

For what it's worth, the episodes are also listed as Season 18 on Fox's UK website: https://www.foxtv.co.uk/shows/fox/family-guy#episodes-t18

 

We'll feed your info back to the relevant teams.

 

Thanks,

Jason

Does anyone know how to fix this? I wanted to catch up on the new season but it's season 17 that plays?

If you want to watch the real Season 18, it's on ITV2:

FOX UK won't be showing it for some time, despite them claiming that Season 17 is Season 18!
