On Demand is not On Demand

My wife is a big fan of watching old episodes of her favorite tv shows. Me, not so much. But when she's not happy; I'm not happy. 

When you select On Demand, search and locate your favorite tv show, select a previous season for viewing, select an episode from that season, the text for that episode will state "viewable 8/1/2018", OVER A WEEK FROM NOW. You have to DVR the episode and watch it later. My wife wants to see it now. That's why we're paying over $225 bucks a month.

Comcast, you need to rename On Demand to When We Feel Like It.

Comcast can only show what the network gives to On Demand to show.  So, if the network wants that episode to show on 8/1/2018, there isn't a lot Comcast can do about it.
