  1. For those who might care! Discovered today 7/17: 'Monkey Business (1931)' HD version has FINALLY been added to TCM ON DEMAND. So both SD and HD versions as with other titles. Opens to full screen of course with black borders on both sides since 4:3. Ranting to my provider may have paid off. What a great surprise!

    Please add SD versions ASAP.

    JUST ONE OF HUNDREDS OF POSTS RE HD CONTENT Lack of HD Premium channel content I hear all this talk of 4k rolling out yet the premium channels are not all in HD. Directv and Dish have ALL THEIR PREMIUMS IN HD! Why is the HOme shopping network and the food channel in HD yet PAID PREMIUM SUBSCRIPTION channels are not? HBO East is not in HD. (all the live events/shows ex Game of Thrones airs on HBO East before it airs on HBO West) I don't want to wait 3 hours to watch my favorite TV show in HD. The same goes for all the other providers! This is 2017! Only 4 out of 12 HBO Channels are in HD. (HBO go does not stream live content so don't try to tell me to authenticate via the APP) Only 1 out of 7 Starz Channels is in HD.... (Starz does not even Xfinity as a listed provider for authentication!) Only 1 out of Showtime Channels in HD Only 1 out of 4 Cinemax Channels in HD

    I'm not wasting anymore of my time or yours on this matter. I simply asked Comcast EMPLOYEE if TCM versions offered in HD and/or SD is due to TCM or Comcast. He posted on Comcast's forum under topic ON DEMAND. Why? Because other Comcast customers also asked. They also inquired why Comcast has only one HBO HD channel ---------- the rest are SD. Why do they complain? I presume because SD versions don't fill their HD screens. All PBS channels do as do all news channels: MSNBC, CNN, Fox News etc. Aforementioned channels also have SD versions. If they did not have HD versions I can easily predict what would happen to Comcast's subscribers base i.e. CUSTOMERS. As for the films I have all on DVD and Blu-ray and even many on VCR tapes. Too many! End of matter for good.

    TODAY FROM MY PROVIDER CSR EMPLOYEE (also posted on website) Apologies for the delay in responding. I do see 59 titles available from TCM On Demand right now. Certainly, not all content from TCM is available On Demand. We provide the On Demand content (and in the format) that TCM provides to us. TCM also provides a different offering of On Demand titles to video providers that what they offer via their Watch TCM website. There are other classic WB films are also available as On Demand options to rent or buy – but these WB titles are not provided by TCM On Demand. The provider of the content is clearly labeled on each title screen. Apologies for any confusion we may have caused.
  5. MONKEY  BUSINESS (1931) aired Wednesday July 11 but STILL only SD version is in ON DEMAND UNTIL JULY 18.  I just tried again  to watch but impossible due to too small (postage stamp)

    Sorry for my apparent simplistic bizarre scenario. I don't care if its TCM or Comcast, or theories why titles on TCM's ON DEMAND are either SD and HD or merely only SD and not HD and vice-versa. Check the list of titles for yourself. Some in HD or SD only makes no sense TO ME. In closing, and in comparison to TCM merely go to Premium channels: HBO ON Demand , Showtime ON Demand, Starz and MAX and you will see each title offered in SD and HD versions. Please don't waste your valuable time protracting this bizarre scenario of which I sincerely apologize. END OF MATTER! SteveQL

    MONKEY BUSINESS (1931) aired Wednesday July 11 but STILL only SD version is in ON DEMAND UNTIL JULY 18. I just tried to watch but impossible due to too small (postage stamp) PLEASE DOWNLOAD THE HD VERSION. IF NOT, WHY NOT?
  9. I missed airing. But, its not in ON DEMAND. So out of luck to watch at my convenience. Far too many titles not downloaded to ON DEMAND. Fed up!
  10. Thanks. I've already reported to Comcast. They are investigating. Already passed from one CSR to another replies: Thank you for the reply, I have reviewed the examples you provided and see that most of these titles are being offered by other content providers like Sony and Warner Bros via Video on Demand. This leads me to believe that TMC doesn't have the rights to provide these through Video on Demand, but I am going to research further to make sure that is correct. Hi Stephan. I'm responding on behalf of Phil. I've sent your examples over to our On Demand support team. They'll review all of these examples and provide answers. I'll let you know once they have something definitive. Thanks again. They too have redesigned their site and its a hassle.
  11. SD versions of Diplomaniacs (1933) Monkey Business (1931) and other titles over the past two days IN ON DEMAND are squeezed to postage stamp embedded in middle of letterbox after intro. Thus, SD movies do not open to full screen. Senseless to watch. Will this be or not be resolved and if so when? SteveQL

    Solution: Just ignore my posts. My HD TV is in the living room. CRT SD TV in bedroom. So If I try to watch a movie on Demand in SD (on bedroom TV) and its only on HD I must go out to the living room to watch. Other way around, if only SD version then won't watch on HD TV. ----------------------- As for the SNAKE PIT out of sync I believe you cited. I confirmed and posted to my providers forum. But, since last day for subject title (TCM ends it July 8). I expect no resolution. Again, ignore my posts. I'm no doubt too picky for what I pay and expect on cable TV and TCM content. And, have received until recently (about time WarnerMedia evolved) Please accept my apology! And, once again ignore my picky posts
  13. I didn't bother with WATCH TCM streaming
  14. Same here out of sync in both HD and SD versions. I posted complaint on my cable provider's website. But, I expect no response since SNAKE PIT ON DEMAND ends today July 8.
  15. Colleen (1936) in ON DEMAND HD version only (not HD and SD verisons). So, I can't watch on my SD only TV. When will this be resolved?
