Schitt's Creek

Why is there no "On Demand"  for the first episode of the new season of Schitt's Creek.  The only option is to buy it, which I have never seen before on a current season of a channel (POP) that you subscribe to.

I noticed this too. I posted here:

I ended up watching it on my Roku using the PopNow channel. Even better, I was able to simply fast forward through the commercials. Not sure how long that will last until they configure the episode to use inserted commercials.

That is exactly what I have done in previous years...wait until the next day-go to episodes- and one of the watch options was HD.  Maybe they will fix this.  It should at least give you the choice for free to watch in SD.

I have a DVR and record it anyway. But, if I can watch it in HD, I'd rather do that. To be honest, the picture tends to look a bit soft anyways, although titles are sharp. I wonder if the show is actually recorded in HD, or widescreen SD.

After having watched it in HD all these years, I can't bring myself to watch it in SD.  If I have to, I'll wait a half a year until Netflix adds season 6 to the 1-5 they are showing now.
