I am sorry but FX is no longer making episodes available for streaming.

 

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.

Will SOA Season 5 be available on demand?  I currently do not see any available.

this is ridiculous. Not only is Sons of Anarchy one of the most popular series' on television and Comcast doesn't have it on demand, but also Comcast bumped it to 1am EST! Time to switch to Direct TV or dish.

Comcast keeps letting everyone down and now they are not keeping the one show I want for ondemend.  Ever try calling them? They don't have enough representatives and now this. I look at my cable bill and am just about shut off my TV service and try Verizon.

heytate1 and Cube, this post is a couple of weeks old, but I just wanted to jump in to emphasize a point that Joe was making - the content providers make the rules per their licensing agreements for their shows.  In this case, FX decides what content they want to make available for On Demand, online, and mobile.  They also decide when shows are going to air in their TV lineup.  You'll find the same rules and restrictions with DirecTV and Dish.

Just to add, this show is available On Demand, just not online.  Episodes 1-3 of the current season are available now and new episodes are available 8 days after they air, so we should have episode 4 this Weds (10/10).

Re: Sons of Anarchy Season 5 online?

I just got caught up to the current season and when I went to use On Demand to catch up on season 5, the first 5 episodes are not available.  Any idea when I will be able to view these so I can start watching each week?

Re: Sons of Anarchy Season 5 online?

Per FX's licensing restrictions, we're only permitted to have the 3 latest episodes available.

Re: Sons of Anarchy Season 5 online?

I cant believe I'm actually saying this, but for once its not Comcast's fault. FX and AMC (among others) are greedy jerks. They see no reason to give you access to their content when they can make a few bucks by offering their shows for sale on Amazon and iTunes. Its not enough that they get ad revenue, they want YOUR money too. So, if we're lucky we can watch new episodes for a week or so online, but if we miss that window we have to shell out 2 or 3 bucks to watch.

 

I wouldn't mind this strategy so much if the shows in question were ad free, but they get so much money from advertisers its kind of evil for them to squeeze us for more money. And they wonder why people pirate their shows.

Re: Sons of Anarchy Season 5 online?

I noticed season 6 of SoA is set to premier on September 3rd,. I happened to be up super late and just came across a couple of the season 5's airing on FX HD. About a month and a half or so before the new Breaking Bad premier aired, the previous season was available VOD under "Past Season Catch Up". Unfortunately i am unable to locate that selection On Demand. Is this something that will be re launched a little closer to premier date or available Under a different category possibly?

I would love to hear back regarding this issue. Quite frankly, this was the reason i restarted service with Comcast was so i could watch these programs i have been waiting all year for. That and the fact that you are the only cable provider in the area. thank you and i hope to hear back soon!
