FALSE Advertising on the part of COMCAST when it comes to free movies on demand. The majority of the movies I prefer to watch are beng shown by Netflix, and in order to watch the movie you need to subscribe to Netflix for a monthly fee, what is that all about. Free means free, not subscribe and pay a fee. On to the FCC and BBB. If there are enough complaints, maybe we can get our free movies back.
¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Comcast's free OD content as never been all that great in my opinion. I wouldn't expect the content to be on the level of a paid premium service though.
Chief5, thanks for your feedback. If you are subscribed to premium channels, you can view all the movies on demand under "premium movies". Those are included with your subscription.
Movies under "Free Movies" will provide you with an option to watch via Netflix or otherwise before you can view.
I agree. It's very deceptive. I don't want to subscribe to Netflix just to watch movies that are advertised as free. It seems like every cable company will do everything they can to dupe you into buying more extras. We already pay way too much as it is.
Hello Nic101 and CarnegieGuy, although you subscribe to a certain network it doesn't mean all of the content will be listed as "Free". Some TV shows and movies owned by the networks can be listed as paid content per episode due to network rules. This is not something set up by Comcast this is a decision made by the network. For example I subscribe to HBO I can watch the current season of "Game of Thrones" and a few others but the first few seasons are listed as paid content. If you would like to see your favorite content on your favorite networks free please reach out to the network and request that it be added to your on demand menu with no charge.

Thank you for clarifying that for me, I will alert our on demand team so that they can make the proper adjustments to your TV guide. If you do not subscribe to Netflix those channels should not be listed as free, thank you again for your feedback we hope to have this taken care of for you shortly.
Please advise how to find FREE movies. Each time I select one it gives an option of using Netficks,etc.
Theses are not free. Isn’t there a way to just display just the free section?
Very frustrating while you have children viewing the screen telling you it is right there and having to explain you have to pay.
