TV shows on demand

Why are you charging for last season TV shows?  I believe Comcast charges enough for their services.

Accepted Solution

Re: TV shows on demand

Hello all, the information that (Again) has provided is correct. Although you pay Comcast for services and subscribe to certain channels the content listed on demand is provided from the network. They have the ability to post content free or as paid content, we only provide the stream to you. If you see your favorite show that is listed as paid content please provide your feedback to the network that airs the show. You can also set your DVR to record the series so you never miss another episode and you can finish the season.

The providers are the ones charging for the TV shows, not Comcast.

Re: TV shows on demand

I pay my bill (which Comcast appears at the top) at a comcast office. I have been with this company (regardlees of which name they used) for over 15 years. Just when I thought I've seen it all, this company never ceases to amaze me. The "providers" must be hurting for money...to charge $2.99 for each second season episode, I don't recall this issue in the past.

Really? With this, and charging for other programs that  used to be free......makes me wonder what is next.

Re: TV shows on demand

I understand where you are coming from, but when it comes to on demand only the networks have the authorization to post their content at an additional cost.
