Paying for ON DEMAND...the channels you already have.

Paying for ON DEMAND...the channels you already have.

I would like to know when did we start paying for prior seasons in "on demand"?  What is the point of On Demand?  

I'm guessing Comcast/Xfinity has a shortage of new customers, and this is a way to jam up the existing customers with revenue.  Because not everyone has the time to watch all episodes in real time, the point of "on demand".  Now their making us pay for it, say if we just happen to have a life and maybe just kick back and have down time later to catch up, but now we have to pay extra on top of the monthly bill.  DAYUUM!!!!

Comcast isn't the one charging for prior seasons of shows; that is the networks.

Whatever...it's ridculous.  Thank goodness for Netflix, the Network wants $39 for a season and $2.99 and episode and some $5.99.  That's bunk.
