TV timetables – what timetables

Why does Fairfax (and presumably other publications) bother to print times for TV shows? Particularly on the commercial channels these starting/stopping times are quite useless. They are many minutes out (up to 15 minutes) and it leaves the viewer to wonder: “is this deliberate? Do they intend to stop us viewing shows on other channels?”
Is this misleading advertising? Is there any requirement to show the true and actual starting/stopping times of TV shows?
