On Demand television shows fees

I don’t understand why I have to pay $2.99 to watch shows that I have missed on non premium channels, TLC, OWN, etc. If the show has already showed on the channel, why would there be a charge for it on On Demand? This is very frustrating!! Is it Xfinity’s decision or the channel/show? There was a time (a long time ago) that this was free. I don’t understand if you pay a monthly subscription (which is not cheap) that I would have to pay separately for already shown shows.

That is the decision of the network, not Comcast.

If this is in fact a networks decision to charge, then the exorbitant amount that is charged by Comcast should cover those costs for all their paying customers to watch the show's they are clearly paying for
