    Though it seems that at least they might show it in some form.

    *shakes fist at sky*
    Darn you, cideeeer!

    (Also, what do they mean "banned"? Who's doing the banning? I assumed it was the channel themselves being prudish.)

    It is! I spoke to ofcom and they have the code and they don't banned words like cider and it's down to the broadcaster.

    It'll be the channel's compliance officer, who's responsible for ensuring content is not in breach of the broadcasting code, COSTA or BCAP code. While the broadcasting code only expressly prohibits Misuse of alcohol being shown pre-watershed, however as Tiny Pop is aimed at very young children there is an expectation to not show any or references to alcohol.

    That's why I'm a little bit sceptical of that email... I mean it could be legitimate as it seems like a reasonable explanation, but unexpectedly direct wording in "episode banned as it was featuring Cider", I wouldn't expect them to use the term "banned" (because as you say, banned by whom, I'd be surprised for a broadcaster to use word banned even if content can't be aired), and if they were going to give that explanation, I'd expect a bit more detail than "as it was featuring Cider"... but I would have more expected it to say something like "couldn't be aired in its current form due to regulations".

    There'll be a form of Chinese whispers going on as compliance orders scheduling to pull the episode, then PR later asks scheduling why it was changed. It's also like how health and safety gets blamed for "banning" things.

    I guess it was too good to be true. Although I am curious to see if they actually do air the finale earlier following this. It would certainly prove whether or not it was a cider reference that got this episode taken down.

    When is the finale supposed to air on Tiny Pop anyway?

    So, I've noticed the remainder of the season has made it first to the UK.
    Apart from "Where the Apple Lies", which was pulled from its date. Looking more about it, it's another Cider related episode.

    Indeed. The finale aired as advertised, so I'm assuming episode 24 will appear on Monday. As for E23, I can't really comment on that as we're still in the 24 hour "spoiler period", but a glance at the episode thread will give enough detail. :)

    That'll probably be because they thought of the cider, as Rainbow Dash pleaded for somepony to do, and removed it from schedule.

    They usually do :( They omit Simple Ways and Maud Pie too, which have a few mentions of cider. Also Pinkie Pride, which doesn't. I have no idea what they have against Pinkie Pride.

    Watching Maud Pie on POP MAX as I type this, so it's not like the episode is on some sort of blacklist, more like some s4 episodes have randomly been taken out of rotation on the other channel. Maybe someone at Tiny Pop pressed the wrong button lol

    But even Pop's main channel which is aimed at a slightly higher age group are fine with showing the cider eps. It's only TinyPop that doesn't. As far as I recall anyway.

    According to the sky planner they are showing S4,5 and 6!

    The episode Tiny pop got changed is at 2pm tomorrow afternoon. If anyone is free can they check out if it's the change version or not as I'm not going to be around and can't record it as I haven't got the Sky + function on my box
