Unlocking Xfinity Account to Watch TV Shows on line

Unlocking Xfinity Account to Watch TV Shows on line

I want to watch the House MD series finale that aired last night.  The Fox channel says that it locks shows for 8 days after airing before it can be viewed on line. However, it also states that if you have an account with certain providers, (of which Xfinity-Comcast is one) you can log onto to your Xfinity account and unlock the show for viewing immediately on line.  How do I go into my Comcast-Xfinity account and unlock the show to allow me to view it on line tonight?

Fox has recently imposed new restrictions regarding when users may view current Fox content online.  As a result, XfinityTV.com users will now have to wait eight days after a Fox program has aired on television before they can watch such program on XfinityTV.com.  We’re sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

 

If you have any further questions about this particular issue, please contact Fox directly.

Can you tell me if this is the case the "On the Fly" on TLC?  I'm not seeing it on TV Series online.  Plus there seems to be a lot of series not shown.  How does a tv series get posted online?  By popular demand?

Our content team is constantly working to bring you a wider selection of TV Shows and movies. We add new content daily, but due to licensing agreements, we may not have every movie/show/episode available for viewing.

 

I will pass your request along to our content team.
