  1. 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


  2. In ON  DEMAND the movie "HARPER" is only available in HD so I can't watch on my SD TV.  Please add SD version ASAP. 

    And, I just now tried to watch "FOOTSTEPS IN THE DARK". It too is in HD only.  So, again, I can't watch on my SD TV.

    When will this be corrected?  All titles in ON DEMAND have historically been in both SD and HD versions.

    I sent same to CONTACT US which never responds.

    Will TCM resolve or should I contact by Cable provider?

    Thank you,

    I missed Run Silent Run Deep

    Notwithstanding, 'Run Silent Run Deep' has been on before I missed it. But, was on last week and by chance  I turned it on but was half way through.  However, I just observed it is in ON DEMAND but as is typical with TCM is in SD version only. So useless to watch in postage stamp format.  So hope it plays again in HD.  No way to alert TCM of ON DEMAND version in SD only.   Same as My Fair Lady.  They will do zero to correct!

    TCM just downloaded HD version of Run Silent Run Deep or I missed it before posting  above.  My Fair Lady of course still in SD version only.

    Why is TCM re-running the same movies over and over again.  This has happened numerous times the past couple of months.

    Take for example right now they are showing RUN SILENT RUN DEEP.

    This same movie was on just this past month. 

    With all the incredible inventory of films that TCM has, I don't understand why they are re-running so much. 

    I love TCM.  Just wondered what the reasoning is behind the re-running.

  5. Surprised! (but, pleasantly so).   Just checked (1:15 PM PST) TCM ON DEMAND. And, found new additions.  "Beast With Five Fingers" (in SD only) which aired last week.  It opened in postage stamp (letter box) but when movie started expanded to full screen (as it would if was HD version).  Then, two versions of The Maltese Falcon HD and SD.  Also "She" in SD only which I didn't waste time opening since I  am aware of film and would be letter boxed (postage stamp) since was filmed in wide screen CinemaScope (1965)

    Maybe more will appear. 


  6. RE: But if you weren't such a hard head about it you could stream it from WATCH TCM right now

    I too have hundreds of DVDs and Blu-Rays.  But, I pay Comcast for TCM and  ON DEMAND.   I refuse to stream or dig out a DVD to watch content that USED to be in TCM On Demand after airing.

    I'm not alone see postings at Comcast On Demand:

    Re: TCM On Demand Movies Shrinkage

    The problem has been going on since about Wednesday of last week, when films for TCM via On Demand were added but only in HD or SD versions, not both.  And the additions were few in number.  Now the few added films all expire within a day or two because they were broadcast on TCM close to a week ago.  I didn't see any films from Friday, Saturday or yesterday offered through TCM's On Demand list. 

    Overall, the number of films available are expiring and not being replaced, with increasingly fewer films listed, which was the same problem from two years ago. The last time this happened, Comcast said the problem involved a third party vendor handling the transfer of films from TCM to Comcast.  Comcast, you need to look into this and sort this out.

    I pay a lot of extra money for that additional tier in order to watch TCM and its On Demand listings.

  7. Although aired before, Maltese Falcon, which I missed. However, I'd like to know why after yesterday's airing:

    The Maltese Falcon was aired yesterday but, of course, not in On DEMAND.   However, if you use SEARCH and enter Maltese Falcon -------------- there it is for RENT at $3.99 to $12.99 HD and SD. 

    This deeply concerns me. I sent same to Contact US -----------but i predict they will not reply.

     


  8. I just called my cable provider whose system is down ---unreal! I, however, was ultimately able to speak with a U.S. based CSR (in Houston).  I explained to her TCM ON DEMAND titles are inconsistent ---not all in both SD and HD.  I gave her examples: My Fair Lady in SD only so postage stamp view on my HD TV and Foreign Correspondent in HD only so can't watch on my SD CRT TV.   With her system down I could not guide her to TCM's On Demand site to show her lack of both SD and HD versions.  She responded that as an agent (CSR) she cannot contact TCM and told me not all movies were filmed in HD (wide screen) blah, blah blah!!!  She said she will escalate my complaint to someone else.  But, I doubt she will be able to explain if she can't grasp (fully understand) the issue.  I told her I am not the only customer having the problem.

    To sum up another waste of time!
