The rights to show content in-home are separate from the TV Go (anywhere) rights. Programmers determine which shows and episodes they make available and in which way (On Demand and/or TV Go). Premium networks typically have very good converage for both so I'm a bit surprised. Sometimes it is the show's production company (not the network) that has the ultimate control. I'll see if I can get more information on Power from the Content team.

I understand, it just doesn't make sense that a few episodes are are available for out of home free while in home I would have to pay extra for the same episodes.

The episodes are available on the "Ultra HD Sampler" for people with a Samsung UHD tv.

 

In the end it's what the programers have set up for any particular app, ON Demand cable or internet version, etc. Things can change on a day to day basis. People can make mistakes when making changes.
