Sports on Demand does not show full event
Yesterday I wanted to watch the FIS Women's Downhill Alpine ski race from Bansko, Bulgaria on X1 "On Demand". What I saw was -
- 2 minutes from Bansko announcing the race had been delayed
- a 30 minute show with 2 women pretending to be training for the olympics
- approx 15 minutes showing a gentleman who dyes his beard and cheers for Canadian curling teams
- and finally, the first 19 and 1/2 (it finished in the middle of the 20th competitors run) skiers out of fifty starters.
I had to watch the first 45 minutes to get to the curtailed skiing. "On demand", in this instance, does not allow fast forwarding.
In the 1980's, I owned a VHS-VCR. I would sometimes set the VCR to record shows, and if the show or event was delayed, would get the same type of result that Comcast gets now. (Although I would have the ability to fast forward through the parts I didn't want to see. )
However, technology has evolved, and I would have hoped for the money I pay comcast, they would have advanced beyond the 1980's. But apparently not.
