Re: simpsons on demand missing a lot of shows

Hi Folks, Yes you are indeed correct we should have all episodes of The Simpsons - looks like there was an issue on the FOX side with making sure the dates were properly extended to cover 2018. Thus they expired 12/31 at 11:59PM EST.

 

We are working with Fox (FXX) on this issue and hoping to resolve it soon.

A Comcast chat support rep told me yesterday that they removed the Simpsons to make room for other shows... Either way, it's no good.

Thanks for working on this. I’ll be honest, literally the ONLY reason that I am willing to pay for Comcast is for access to every Simpsons ever on demand.

Bring back the Simpsons! This is a travesty!

Hello all, the information that (ComcastTony) shared is correct. The content expired and we are currently working with Fox to get this issue resolved, please note that these episodes (Seasons 1-28) are still available online and on mobile devices via the Xfinity Stream portal and app. The current episodes from Season 29 were not affected and are available On Demand.

Re: simpsons on demand missing a lot of shows

9 days in and the problem persists? Is there a contract dispute or is somebody within Comcast or Fox not doing their job? 2% of the year has passed and the folks at Comcast and Fox can't fix a typo in their show's expiration year? I'm not far from cancelling my service. I'm getting sick of this incompetence. I know it's not your fault, Comcast employees, but your corporate superiors and their equivalents at Fox are challenging my patience (as this is far from the first offence).

Exactly.  If it's a legal issue, why wasn't it resolved before the new year?  If it's a technical issue, how difficult is it to change "2017" to "2018"?  Seriously.

Hello all, I understand you're eager to have this content added back to your on demand menu. We are still working on getting a fix for the issue, thank you for your patience.
