CNBC Guide is totally wrong!

Various channels on Optik TV have been advertising the premier of Jay Leno's Garage on CNBC at 7:00 PM on the 7th. It was listed in the guide accordingly but what was actually aired at that time was Asia Squawk Box. The show has been listed in the guide three times since then but there's always some other program being shown; NOT Jay Leno's Garage. I thought they might have their time zones mixed up, so I tried to watch it three hours early but no luck. If you aren't going to show it, why advertise it? How hard is it to get the guide right?

How hard is it to get the guide right?


The programming is the responsibility of CNBC, not Telus, so both the programming time and the advertising of the show would be up to them (CNBC).  Since the guide is supplied by others, not Telus, it may be harder than you expect. Telus depends on the supplier of the guide, or the broadcaster themselves to supply accurate information about programs. Here are three articles on the topic:

I wonder if they decided to not air it in Canada and substituted another program in it's place...
