  1. TCM live showing of "Ben Hur" not working
  2. Thank You, it appears to be working properly now  :)

  3. Now it's back to not recognizing XFINITY as my service provider!!! Please can't someone fix this
  4. So now, TCM recognizes that my provider is XFINITY, but when I hit play the screen says done as if the movie was over and it never played. Please Help!!
  5. I've been unable to watch Movies On Demand for two days now because TCM can't verify my Service Provider. I've contacted XFINITY and they say it is a TCM problem. Please can someone look into this and fix it.
  6. Getting message from TCM that it can't verify my account with XFINITY. My account with Comcast/Xfinity is in good order all bills are paid and I was just watching On Demand a few hours ago. Please fix this as I am a senior citizen who can't sleep and I need to watch TCM. Thank you for your help.
  7. Very disappointed in not seeing this Christmas classic in the lineup.
  8. Sorry for the spelling, I know the "I before e" rule, just typed it too quickly.
  9. It seemingly works fine but the movie won't play
  10. At what point will the governmental regulatory agencies (local or federal) step in and do something about companies like Comcast. I remember back 25 years or so, politicians were promising to reign in these monopolies by allowing competition; we were going to have a choice of cable companies in our area, not satellite service, Roku or any of the other stuff. It was supposed to be direct competition, cable company vs cable company. Whatever happened to that concept?
  11. I haven't read every post from every page, but I haven't seen my problem posted anywhere. Although I am a senior citizen, I still work full time from my home. I have 5 TVs in my home with the main box residing in my son's room, the rest have the little remote boxes. I have had these TVs and hookups for years and I could get everything on my Comcast subscription in every room with a TV and a box. I love TCM enough to have been willing to pay the 10 bucks and really didn't care about the Sports Entertainment Package. So I signed up, but still couldn't get TCM or the packaged channels. A tech came over and informed me that packages could only be viewed on the TV with the main box, in order to have it the way it used to be for over 30 years, I would have to get a main box for every TV, at an additional cost of $12-13 PER TV! So in order for me to see TCM on every TV it would now cost me an additional $50 or so. So now my bill would increase by $60 per month. I asked him who was running Comcast, The Sopranos? Next Comcast will be kidnapping our family members!!! I don't know if Direct TV or any of alternate suggestions made by the many posts that I have read here and on the Internet in general, but I'm certainly going to investigate them. I have had enough of Comcast and their BS. Comcast claims that their viewers were watching only two or less TCM movies a week. If that were true, there would not be this nationwide groundswell of Comcast customer outrage. Comcast executives must really think that their customer base is dumb.
  12. There are 3 great Lewis movies that are never shown on TV: The Errand Boy, The Ladies Man and The Family Jewels. I hope TCM shows them. RIP Jerry, you've brought a lot of love, laughter, and hope to the world. Labor Day weekend will always remind me of the telethons that I watched for so many years. God Bless!
  13. In his opening intro to "Marty", Ben Mankiewicz stated that Ernest Borgnine had played mostly heavies prior to "Marty", in fact he had killed Frank Sinatra two years earlier in "From Here To Eternity"..."...a fact that the people in the Brooklyn neighborhood where Marty was filmed never let Borgnine forget. I've checked multiple sources and they all stated that "Marty" was filmed on Bronx locations and the borough of Brooklyn was never mentioned.
  14. Let me preface my comment by saying that I absolutely love classic movies and TCM. My father got me interested in them when I was growing up (in the 50's). Many fond memories of watching "The Early Show", "The Late Show", "Million Dollar Movie"...and for the last 21 years "Turner Classic Movies". But there are some movies that when I watch as an adult, I see things that I didn't grasp as a youngster. Monty Woolley falls and breaks/fractures his hip so is forced to stay at someone's home until he is well thereby wreaking havoc on everyone...the premise of the movie. As I watched this last night, I remember thinking " why didn't they call an ambulance and take him to a hospital?" I mean was healthcare so different in 1942 that no one even thought or suggested it? I love this movie and have seen it before, but it never dawned on me until yesterday that the whole premise of having an injured person be treated with home care instead of a hospital stay seemed just a bit absurd. Well, as I said, maybe not so far fetched for 1942.
