Syntax Error so i can view all non-subscription movies?

Syntax Error so i can view all non-subscription movies?

Well this title sure will attract some attention from Comcast...

and yes, this is what happened, i only have HBO and streampix but i seems to be able to stream all (i tried five different ones) STARZ and SHOWTIME movies.

 

As a web developer myself, i opened browser console and found multiple "syntax error" from purchase.js and those inlined scripts. No way Comcast will put this kind of business logic on client-side so i suppose these errors are from falling to open a pop-up notification which would ask me to pay extra for those movie?

 

It's a friday night and i have no interest to read thru your js and/or check all http responses, so i am just only to open a thread here.

 

Now that i think of it, maybe those just are free movies, little treat to me, right?

 

p.s. just tried Disney Channel, same thing, i can stream it w/o subscription.

If I've learned anything over the last two months, it's that Comcast's web dev process is horribly broken. Not sure they actually even have a QA department.

Before the the presidential bickering, I mean debate, I found I was able to stream channels I'm not subscribed to either (cable box would error with subscription required). I posted about it on forums to see if anyone else had this great ability. After the bickering was over I tried again and my ability to stream unsubscribed channels was gone.
