Missing episodes

Why why why bother making a season of a series available to stream online with a couple of random episodes smack in the middle of a continuing story "unavailable in home only"!!!!!!!!!????????????????? Either the entire season should be available to stream or not, not season 1 except for episode 4 in home only. It's infuriating and makes no sense.  I can see no benefit to anyone for this. Please, someone explain.

Whether a show is available on demand and whether limited to at home only is controlled by the provider. A number of shows when it is first available on demand it is set to at home, then after a while the at home only limit is removed. That episode probably was missed getting its at home only flag removed. Which show is this?

Re: Missing episodes

For example 10 days in the Valley season 1 4 episodes so far, episode 3 in home only. This is a mystery suspense if I I can’t watch episode 3 but I can watch episodes 1,2,4 and presumably the rest of the season (unless another random episode gets skipped) in either case the rest of the season is messed up for me. It’s not a one off problem this happens over and over and over again. The only time this gets corrected is after the season concludes. Then why stream it all until the season is over so you can stream them all.

Re: Missing episodes

Why would providers only make some episodes available on demand and some available inhome randomly within the same season? That makes no sense

Re: Missing episodes

Saying it’s the providers doing it not xfinity side steps the problem. It’s either on demand or it isn’t on demand, not on demand except for episode 3.

I've seen this problem on the forums many times, an episode mark in home while the rest are not. Its usually a mistake somewhere in the system and once brought to their attention, it gets fixed. Xf reps say its the providers that control this and they have to contact the provider to correct, but who knows.
