Why do some on-demand episodes cost money??

I recently started watching street outlaws and got to the end of season 2 where Comcast wants me to pay to watch s2 ep7 and ep8. This show originally aired in 2014.

I just skipped them and moved to season 3. I got all episodes free except the last one. All of season 4 was free. What bothers me is season 5 ep1 is free, ep2 is buy, then the rest of season 5 is free. Why random pay episodes? Why do I have to pay for an old show? It’s on a the discovery channel, which is included in my overpriced package already so why do you think it’s okay to treat customers like this?

They did the same thing with Gotham. I had quit watching it because of it. They now have Gotham on Netflix. One of these days I'll start watching again.


It's sad when you pay almost $200.00 a month for a service and they still want to charge more.
