On demand episodes

There are many shows on demand that are missing episodes. If you can't get access to all the episodes you might as well not show it all. I don't want to watch a show that I can't see all the epsisode. It is frustrating because we watch all our tv through "on demand" . For example Seal Team . This past season was only showing the latest three episodes. so I didn't watch. I checked it today and now it is showing episode 2, 4, 5, 7 . what good is that. My rate has gone up alot over the last 2-3 years and yet the "On demand" has gotten considerably worse.

So, Comcast is only the carrier, not the content provider.

Re: On demand episodes

They should decide not to be the carrier. Why have your name attached to something that doesn't provide a complete service.

Re: On demand episodes

So isn't it a contract between the network and Comcast? Has Comcast turned into a distribution channel to get you interested in a show, then pay for the rest? Will Comcast not be able to provide full seasons of 'On Demand' access unless we subscribe AGAIN to that channels 'premium' channel? Ex: CBS - Watch only shows currently playing or recording - no On Demand, unless you subscribe to CBS All Access for another apx $6-13/ month. I am reading this situation as Comcast being the Bait, and the Hook is the Network, which you won't have access to until you have their own subscription. For 15 Networks, you may watch, which could cost you an additional $90 (with limited commercials) to $195 dollars (with no commercials) each month when you only like 1 or 2 shows on that network.  I keep cable because I don't mind commercials and it saves me from having to order networks where I only like 1 show.  Why pay for the grouping of Cable TV with commercials if I can't watch the 1 show I want to watch in full?  Why not drop the Cable cost completely and just sign up for individual networks? I don't want to, but if I have to do it anyway, what's the point of Cable anymore?
