I would like to know why not all episodes of the current season of some shows (The Blacklist, for example) are not on OnDemand. I was recording the whole season to watch when I had the time and only the last four are recorded and the previous episodes are not on OnDemand.

What the heck am I paying a bunch of money every month for if I can't watch what I paid for???

It's up to the network or media company as to how much to leave available. Typically, only the last 3-4 episodes of a current season will be available. Even if it's Comcast-owned NBC, they have to be treated just like any other company. Plus, the production company or even writers/actors/producers may have restrictions.

Since when do they do that? I've had Comcast for years and it's only been in the last year or so that they are demanding $2.99 for episodes of past seasons. Even if the season just ended! This is the first time I've experienced them removing episodes of current seasons. This is not right! 
! I'm just going to have to cut the cord, get digital antenna, Slingbox or something. If I can't watch want I want to watch when I want to watch it, what's the point of paying so much to comcast for cable???

Hello Ronboret, the information that @andyross is correct. It is up to the network that airs the show to allow this content to be viewed on demand. If you would like this content added back to your on demand menu please reach out to the network directly.
