News Corp. data screw up for Attenborough DVD

August 11th, 2014 · 4 Comments

There is a problem with some data sent by News Corp to some newsagents for the Attenborough DVD promotion. Here it is the end of Monday and the company is yet to make a statement. In the meantime newsagency software companies and others have spent too much time today dealing with the problem created by News – with no compensation.

News has failed. It needs to own the situation, apologise and lay out a rectification path. That’s not too much to ask.

    The worlds largest communications company failing to communicate properly with newsagents. Nothing new about that.

    Nice one Steve. It’s ridiculous that they have done this and a day later they have not said anything. It’s possible 400 newsagents have been affected but who knows.

    No apparent problems in SA. Smooth roll out, nett charging at conclusion to subs and them agents.
    Presume just a Vic problem?
