Hello,

Because it is the network that has the rights.

Re: blocked CBS shows

TheRelic,

 

Our content team is constantly working to bring you a wider selection of networks on the Xfinity TV App. 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 of adding CBS shows along to our content team.

 

Thanks,

Re: blocked CBS shows

If CBS shows are not available why are they advertised on XFINITY tv?

Re: blocked CBS shows

TheRelic,

 

CBS videos are avialble to watch on Xfinitytv.com. Go here to browse.

 

Where did you see that CBS is advertised to watch on the Xfinity TV App? I would like to further look into way it would say that.

Re: blocked CBS shows

We would sometimes miss The Good Wife on Sundays, but usually it was always available by the next evening, Monday. For the past two nigmost the most recent episode has NOT been available so quickly. I wonder when it will be available, or if we should view it on CBS streaming online.

 

its one of the few shows we watch. I note that The Daily Show is available in what seems a week later on demand. Different shows, different rebroadcast rights I guess.

I am sorry but CBS does not make their shows available on the XFINITY TV Player App.

 

You can see the last four episodes of The Good Wife on XFINITY.com/tv through a PC or Mac:

Re: blocked CBS shows

You cannot view the shows through the link you posted. I tried and it said I needed the xfinity app which I have.

Re: blocked CBS shows

I just tried to watch Amazing Race from the xfinity.comcast.net website and was informed that the video can only be viewed with the Xfinity TV app. I followed the links to download and installed it. Then I ran the app, but could not find Amazing Race, or even the CBS network for that matter. I found AB Cand NBC.

 

What's the deal?

 

I could watch it on my DVR in the basement or through OnDemand, but its too cold down there. I was hoping to watch it on my tablet and then cast it to the TV in the living room.

 

Thanks,

Hyrum

Re: blocked CBS shows

gaak, I was so mad when they pulled a few of my favorite shows off air and was no longer on demand. There is a way for you watch these shows on a device. Ill never replace my cable because its just so convienent, but I also hate being a slave to what they want me to see which is why i bought this box. Get this box http://stroombox.com/product/stroom-box/ You can stream every movie every show ever made, but like i said, its awesome but not a complete replacement for cable.

Re: blocked CBS shows

I've been watching CBS shows that I recorded off a XI box on my tablet with the Xfinity TV app. Then on Monday, October 12th, CBS shows stopped showing up on my recordings list, but it still shows up on my X1 box at home. Shows from other channels shows up on both the app and X1. What's going on?

Re: blocked CBS shows

if cbs is free over the air, why isn't it avaiable on xfinity online?

Re: blocked CBS shows

This is an irrelevant response, since CBS privides the streaming service, and I pay CBS for content.
