Wow this is a funny topic. You see I observed that when the new season is over you can watch all
the last season in the on-demand menu until the new season starts. However if a show is live but a rerun you can restart it on-demand for free even if it isn't free in their on demand menu.
Once more funny is that when you skip to a channel live to see what's on other channels and wait 5 minutes you go back to the channel and still see commercials. I can document 7 minutes of straight commercials while watching live tv between two channels.
Welcome to the future of your viewing habits being sold for profit.
A 6 year old sat down with his son and to watch the Super Bowl. Dad couldn't help but notice that everytime the broadcast went to a commercial the kid started to surf on his iPad. In the fourth quarter dad finally asked why is it that every time there is a commercial you play with your iPad?
The 6 year old replie "daddy what's a commercial".
And just because the apps are in their cable box and are in third party apps declared when you launch them, that they aren't looking at and selling what you are watching in those apps to third parties.
Read the fine print.
