    It is such a shame that we who live in Canada are unable to see the whole KBC due to some stupid people who are managing Hindi channels in Canada. We like to record our programs and when we run our recording we find that half of an hour of KBC was recorded as a different program. Our system records program according to the name in Menu and the people who are managing do not even know that there is a different program being telecast in name of KBC. Not only this because first half hour is wasted on a different program last part of the KBC is not recorded because by that time name on the menu changes. We could not see Abhishek Bachan's epicsode because system was unable to record because by that time name on the Menu bar changes. this way we have lost so many good programs. Not just this i decide to record a good movie on the menu bar and later when i get to see the movie it is a totally different movie. It is not just sony tv but all hindi channels are managed by lazy people.
