Comcast charges

Comcast charges

So I am reading that Comcast is charging $2.99 to watch a show from the previous season.  That is ridiculous.  Didn't we already pay for it?  I was also charged $2.99 to watch a previous season episode of Chicago PD.  But, the show was originally DVR'd.  So to add insult to injury, they delete the program you DVR'd for free and I guess when the new season starts, convert what you DVR'd to On Demand and charge you $2.99.  When did this come about and why wasn't I told of this?  And one furthere complication; not all of the previous seasons episodes that I just watched was I charged for.  Some i was and some I was not.  Can anyone explain this?

Comcast isn't charging you for the shows.  That's set by the networks.

Re: Comcast charges

Hi golfmanxxx -- Service Expert Again is correct about this. On Demand content is determined by the content holder, in this case NBC for Chicago PD. The content holder decides what is made available and if their content will be available for free or purchase.
