You guys really need to configure ads and the content you're providing as a whole properly via your catalogs of movies and shows. It's embarrassing that I have to use other sources to watch missed episodes from shows that I watch because scenes are "cut out" (nonexistent), replaced, or horribly interrupted by ads! I have sent multiple feedback notices about this issue since the beginning of 2017 why is this still being ignored?! Look at "Empire S4 Ep5 The Fool" the whole beginning of the episode is cut out! I had to go to Fox.com to watch the remainder of episodes I've missed because the service I pay for is corrupted. This issue happens on a lot of other shows and movies in your catalog way too many to count or list. Sometimes I don't even get the pleasure of going to a legit website to watch the content that is corrupted in your catalogs, 9 times out of 10 I end up having to go to unsafe, unsecure, illegal websites to watch the content that I "pay for" that is corrupted on your website and app while risking my devices to malware and viruses at the same time!
Solved! Go to Solution.
Hey, sorry to hear that you ran into a show with missing scenes. I've reproduced the problem you described with Empire S4 Ep 5 and have opened a ticket with the content team. In the meantime, the TV Go versions of this episode appear to be fine (at least the opening scene is not skipped). You can choose the TV Go version manually by turning off the Play Best Available option in Settings (the wheel icon next to the Search box on Web, or at the bottom of the left navigation in the mobile apps) > Playback Preferences. Once you do this, tapping the Watch button on the Empire entity screen will show you all available playback options.
It's been a month now, is there an update on this problem because I am still experiencing this with some content even after disabling Play Best Available.
MsCom-castVet, thanks for posting about this. I have also witnessed this myself. We need the show's title, season, and episode so we can get our techs to take a look at correct. If there is corrupt metadata that is causing these errors, we need to reach out to the network to resend that metadata to us. Let me know what other shows and episodes are having issues you've described here.
Feel free to send me a private message with your full name, account address and phone number so I can look into this further.
See that's the problem it happens on a lot of shows and movies too many for little old me to list alone especially on content that I don't even watch. I think Comcast should make an official post about this on the forum so all customers and employees nationwide can see it and be able to update the list with all corrupted content they'd come across.
