Who and how to contact Comcast/Xfinity to get the above-titled film on the On Demand listings?  Also, who and how are film selections made to be on the On Demand lineup?  I've been looking for the past 6 years for this film to be offered, to no avail. I would be very grateful for any help with this request.

Comcast has no control over what is shown OnDemand.....  providers/networks/content owners make these decisions.  I remember that film being available sometime last year and had about a 3 week run on one of the networks.  You could lobby a few of the networks that show older films ( TCM, TNT, TBS, AMC, etc ) to show it again.

You can find the full movie on You Tube. Type in "Hamburger Hill" in the search field and you will find clips and the full movie.

"They" isn't Comcast.

 

Some network would have to make the movie available on On Demand to Comcast before you would see it.  Obviously that hasn't happened.  Comcast has no control over this.

JanetM:

 

I would suggest you Google the name of the movie. Possibly you might find a source for a DVD copy of the movie if one was ever made. Possibly the current owner of rights to the movie. Contacting them might help in your quest.

Another alternative would be to check your local stores/rentals or trade-in stores to see if they might have a copy of the DVD.  After you watch the movie, if you don't  want to keep it, you can re-sell it or trade it back in for something else.
