I wonder why some films shown on the network are not available on demand at  #LionInWinter

Often it comes down to rights issues.   Rights are very complicated, but two variables are almost always the term (how long can someone show a property), and repetitions (how many times can they show it within their time window).  On demand complicates it, especially if the contract is old and pre-dates the advent of on demand capabilities.  I have no idea what the issues are in this particular case, but there's a couple of things it might be.

To get the real answer, you'll need TCM's legal department, more than likely!
