ESPN Classics "repackages" sporting events for rebroadcasts and tags the original air date as the original date for the repackaging.

So, for instance,

Soccer:
2012: Mexico vs. United States
Tue, Jan 1, 08:00 PM to 10:30 PM (208 mins)
From Aug. 15, 2012.
Category: Sports non-event
Type: series (EP00744498)
Original Airdate: 2013-01-01
Program ID: EP007444980648
Length: 3 hrs 28 mins
Recording Group: Soccer
Playback Group: Default

so in the description is the *actual* original date, then, for Original Airdate is the date for the repackaging broadcast.

Is this something SchedulesDirect can fix?

thanks!
