Re: On demand---why is my only option for regular network programming "buy??

Hello CurCha, you may be under the wrong categories like (MNtundraRET) mentioned but to be sure please try a different network other than the one you're currently trying to view. Also please note if there are specific shows/movies that ask you to buy them the cable equipment could be functioning properly, the networks have the ability to list content on demand as free or paid content. Try rebooting your cable box to see if that clears up the "Buy" message if not then the show/movie has been posted as paid content. To see free content say "Free movies" into your voice remote or you can also type in into the search bar.

There is plenty of free programing (covered under cable tiers of programing).

 

You are looking under the wrong categories. In all my years on cable I have never paid for a seperate show.
