CBS

Until two weeks ago we could watch The Good Fight and other CBS network programs through our Comcast subscription, on our APPLE TV device. We did watch it. We enjoyed it. Today, however, we cannot watch it without paying a toll to CBS all accsex.

 

Why did this stop? Is Cable dead? Is CBS extorting money from its viewers? What's up?

 

I blame Comcast. I am seriously considering bying an antenna and dropping Comcast cable altogether. The few programs I watch that are not on the air, I am willing to subscribe to, because the money saved by dropping CC xcetera outweighs the cost. It would cost me less than wasting money on Comcast only to have services cut without notice. What we were getting as part of our subscription last month has been taken from us, and we are not getting it any more. A search of the web does not yield a useful answer. It is as if the whole world has gone mad.

 

At any rate, if Good Fight isn't on air, screw it. I'm not going to waste any more of my time on it.

 

Comcast or Xfinity or whatever you call yourselves is not serving the needs of its users. Cutting off this service is tantamount to a backdoor price increase.

 

IF CBS IS TO BLAME, you ought to tell your subscribers that. If Comcast eccetera is to blame, shame on you and I'm not going to stay with you for very much longer.

It's on CBS on what platform they release their programming. Right now for some CBS shows All Access is it.

It’s the same for all providers, it’s CBS’ choice
