He’s right, I’m afraid. My mistake.
Of course, this rule will break as well, because the local time the show
is aired is always the same, no matter if we have DST or not.
So in my case (CET: UTC+1, CEST: UTC+2) starttime = '09:00:00Z' means:
- in CET start at 10:00 local time
- in CEST start at 11:00 local time
This is of course wrong.
