    Copy of Today's posting to CONTACT US.   I realize a waste of time but sent anyway!

     

    UPDATE RE BELOW NEVER REPLIED TO BY TCM CONTACT US:

    Today: Tuesday December 4 ----"Love Me Or Leave Me"now airing HAS NO CLOSED CAPTIONS. However, it is already in ON DEMAND (for TV). and has closed captions.  Can this be explained and does it reveal the  problem?

    TCM channel 501 (SD  on SD TV) when viewing won't open Closed Captions.  This has been occurring for a week now.  Other channels do not have this problem.  Using my other  TV (HD) in SD mode will allow CC by using Cable Box's CC.    Went through a long chat session with my cable provider (I pay to get TCM) and CSR could not resolve.  Have not escalated with cable provider yet.

    Has TCM changed encoding or something else to cause this?

    Please reply!

    Thank you,

    Today Friday December 7 'Thirty Seconds Over Tokyo' airing with no closed captions   So switched to same title in On Demand already available and played it since it has closed captions.

  4. Copy of topic sent to CONTACT US:

    TCM SD.   This is happening  on my SD TV in which CC must be applied from TV's remote not cable box remote.  On my other TV (HD) CC is applied by cable box remote.

    Problem has never occurred before.

    Please resolve. Or, should I contact my cable provider?

    Thank you,

  5. Gold Diggers of 1937 (1936) which aired at 1:00 AM PST this morning 11/20 kept tearing and freezing (was SD version).  No other  channels did nor did movies that followed.  Not a big deal. But, if any others had same problem I'd appreciate hearing.  

    Note of interest. TCM November schedule for PST lists title for the 19th at 1:00 AM after 11:45 PM movie which preceded.

    Thank you,

    Please add to TCM FREE ON DEMAND TV titles (not streaming) so can be watched on TV at a more convenient time.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  7. Are you able to access TCM TV ON DEMAND titles which will be zero by the end of week?  The reason I ask is you mentioned AT & T. Do you use A T & T Direct?  I'm getting no where with my Cable TV provider.  

    Thanks.

    How can I get a human being at TCM to respond to one simple but important question?   Question is when will TCM add new titles to ON DEMAND FREE TITLES FOR TV after initial airing?   ON DEMAND file titles are nearly two weeks old and the few left (11) expire this week. Thus, with no new titles ON DEMAND file will zero out!   My cable provider can provide no help since they assert they can only add ON DEMAND content when sent by TCM.  This helplessness is forcing me to drop my provider after 28 years.  Please reply.  Thank you.  SteveQL

    I can get no answer from my cable provider to  confirm the TCM ON DEMAND content for TV (not streaming) is history. Perhaps a contract dispute since TCM (is a Time Warner Company).   Lack of new ON DEMAND additions after airing is obviously not being updated other than Abbott And Costello Meet Captain Kidd (1952).  And, no replies from TCM CONTACT US!

  11. RE: Abbott And Costello Meet Captain Kidd (1952)    Noticed its End date is 11/15.   All others are earlier.  I opened every title and then deleted each from info in Recently Viewed. Tedious, but was hoping it would jar loose.  Since TCM offers no answers or replies re status of problem from Contact Us we're on our own!

  13. RE: No East or West live streams.  As of 9.00 AM PST Today Friday November 9 just blank white frames for Live East and West.  I loath using on line but apparently FREE TCM ON DEMAND titles to TV after TV airing is history.  Been same titles listed as NEW (which they are not -----two  weeks old). None are new! TCM never replies so am helpless.
