  3. Hi there, My guess is that there are additional broadcast rights attached to this particular program and as such it does not fall under the current agreement between TCM and Sling TV. I am aware of similar restrictions and limitations with certain programming on TCM with respect to geographic broadcast rights and this does sound somewhat similar (for example, certain programming which airs on TCM is not available in Canada as a result of geo-restricted broadcast rights and is substituted for something else). This sounds very similar to that. Keep in mind that I am speculating here and c
