The Vietnam War on PBS missing

The Vietnam War on PBS missing

The first episode of 'The Vietnam War' on PBS aired last night (9/17/2017) and is not listed in any of the onDemand menus.  All the previews and snippets are there, but not the full episode.  Comcast, any help here?

I believe it's because episode 1 is re-airing on 9/23 along with the first 5 episodes.

I have tested this content on my cable box as well as online and I show all the episodes have been posted on demand. If you continue to have issues viewing this content please reset your cable box by unplugging it for 20-30 seconds then reconnect it. This will allow your guide to reset.

Re: The Vietnam War on PBS missing

Same here, they were all there last night. I'm more angry about this than I expected. Another reason to hate Comcast.

Was in the middle of watching episode seven on streaming last night and it crashed. Error message said something about missing a license. Never came back. Tried again today and see that all episodes except 1 and 2 are missing.

Re: The Vietnam War on PBS missing

Hello All -- All episodes of The Vietnam War are showing available. None of these episodes were pulled by PBS at any time and have remained available since PBS made them available. Please let us know if you continue to have issues viewing episodes from this program.

Re: The Vietnam War on PBS missing

Well, it's now October 15 and only Episodes 1 thru 3 are available. The rest are gone. Comcast, what is going on?  We count on your stability when watching these important documentaries.  Get it straight!!!

Re: The Vietnam War on PBS missing

Same deal for me... What's up. I was in the middle of episode 7 on Sunday. Went to watch tonight and had to pay. What gives?

New Poster

Re: The Vietnam War on PBS missing

I'm now stuck on episode 7 which is no longer available on demand. Had a similar issue with episode 3 a few weeks ago. All episodes but 3 were available. Now all are unavailable EXCEPT episode 3 which is available. Comcast, you're really messing with my mind!

Re: The Vietnam War on PBS missing

Same here - my mom has been watching this series and she's been able to watch episodes 1-6 so far.  Then last night, she said that now she has to pay for 7-10.  No Good Comcast!!  Make it right!!!

Re: The Vietnam War on PBS missing

Why is Comcast charging for episodes four and above on demand? PBS is included with the massive cable bill I pay every month! Nice way to gouge customers/ charge an extra 6.99 per episode. So wrong, and unfair!

Re: The Vietnam War on PBS missing

I found all episodes for free on PBS. org. If you don't mind watching on s smaller device or computer. Don't pay Comcast's rip off fee.
