    Watch TCM Films not loading

    Sorry I missed your post Stephan. Was away part of last week. Glad to hear you got to finish Tora! Tora! Tora! Watched it many times. I just recently checked out the 2-disc special edition from the library. I'm a bit of history film nerd and enjoyed listening to the optional commentary by director Richard Fleischer & Japanese film historian Stuart Galbraith IV. Most of the films have been loading fairly well lately. All but one that is: Merrily We Live ( 1938) I also noticed the overview: http://www.tcm.com/tcmdb/title/614605/Merrily-We-Live/ and film info: http://www.tcm.com/watchtcm/titles/614605 databases are empty.

    Watch TCM Films not loading

    The bard of the boards. Hear, hear Stephen! Thanks to who ever scans these boards, be it moderator, techie or poltergeist. All the films I've wanted to see now work save one. The Duke has been shortchanged: "Somewhere in Sonora 1933" still remains in loading limbo. Darn! Was looking forward to the stagecoach mishap. On the plus side, got to watch "The Third Man 1949" and they added "Fantastic Voyage 1966" to the queue (they had not placed it in rotation when it finished airing). As an aside... I was scanning other messages and someone mentioned they had luck getting a response using TCM Twitter or Facebook. I wish I saved the link to post here but can't seem to locate it again. I don't use either, so I post here to the forum. Those that have those social media connections might have luck trying them.

    Don't think it's cable provider specific. I'm using DISH as my sign in and am experiencing the same issues, Seeing as the Superbowl and TCM are both in Atlanta, I think someone got drunk on the job.

    WatchTCM Recurring Problems

    No real good way to reach them. Check out Stephan55 He has a lot of good insight. I've listed movies that aren't loading for me under Watch TCM Films not loading

    Watch TCM Films not loading

    Wouldn't you know it? I brought back the Classic Film Demon. All of the films to date after "Heart Is a Lonely Hunter" won't load for me. So the running list so far is: previously Singin' In The Rain 1952 Star is Born, A 1937 What Price Hollywood 1932 Somewhere in Sonora 1933 and now as of 2pm PT Feb 2 Suspicion 1941 Panic in the Streets 1950 The Third Man 1949 Night Must Fall 1937 Taxi Driver 1976 Sunrise 1927 Don't expect much to happen. Just thought I'd throw the list out there for the record. Was looking forward to "The Third Man 1949". Even checked the local library just now to see if they had a DVD copy. Someone stole it (missing from the stacks). Alas, not to be! Been my experience that once the movies are in the 7 day queue and they don't load, too bad. They sit there like lonely orphans never to be watched. Hoping that maybe on their next scheduled viewing the techies load them into the queue correctly. I'm gonna have to hijack the TV and watch films live if I can wrestle the remote away. (Hmmm... maybe not. Since I don't pay the cable bill I remain second banana).

    Same here so add it to the list. Saw it a few weeks back so didn't click on it til now. After that they all load up to the latest film "Heart Is a Lonely Hunter". Seems to cluster in bunches.

    LOL. Thanks for your replies Stephan55. Well thought out and courteous. Anyone notice the forum was down last night? Was going to mention a glitch on a film I tried watching January 28th. It was "Wait Until Dark 1967". (Primarily for Audrey Hepburn). It only streamed the first 37 minutes. It has since been taken down. It was between "The Harvey Girls 1946" and "Prisoner of Second Avenue 1974" on the menu. I was also going to mention that things seem to be going well on Watch TCM for a few weeks but those sentiments must have angered the Classic Film Demons. The following films aren't loading on my end: Star is Born, A 1937 What Price Hollywood 1932 Somewhere in Sonora 1933 Woman's Secret, A 1949 Black Swan, The 1942 Quiet Man, The 1952 Could it be the recent showing of "Poltergeist 1982" is behind this? On the plus side "2001: A Space Odyssey" streamed for me (whereas last month it didn't). Reminds me of "The Outer Limits": There is nothing wrong with your television set. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. We are controlling transmission. If we wish to make it louder, we will bring up the volume.

    Watch TCM Films not loading

    The following films are not loading for me: Morning Glory 1933 Hollywood My Hometown 1965 Dr. Mabuse the Gambler 1922 Goodbye, Miss Turlock 1947 The first two show a counter-clockwise arrow (not buffering circle) and won't load. The second two won't load at all. Anyone out in TCM-land experiencing similar issues? Using a laptop, Windows 10 and DISH subscriber.

    WATCH TCM not working

    Andy, I had the same issue you posted last Sunday. Signed up as new user to respond but had to wait for validation so have not checked back til now. The issue you posted about cleared up the next day. I figure they were out for the weekend and fixed it when they got in. Not completely though. There is one show that still won't load: Elvis: That's The Way It Is 1970. 1h 48m. Documentary It is soon to go out of rotation so looks like I'll miss out. Does any one else have a problem with this show loading? I noticed the same thing on "2001: A Space Odyssey" last month. I get the impression that TCM is hard to get through to so I have not bothered to contact them. Have you had luck with any response? Looks like new shows are slow to update. No new ones have been added since "Cover-Up" from early Monday morning.
