  1. Since the morning of August 28, the WatchTCM app I have on Android device and as a Spectrum subscriber, not a single movie title will stream. (The freebie clips/intros will load.) I get the " ! An error occurred" message trying to play any title. I did every trick to try to recover service, like rebooting, reinstalling/ signing in, etc, nothing worked. My Spectrum is working fine, that was verified with tech support last night. Can your technical people please try to fix this, I pay for this service, Thank You!
  2. TCM has just now as of this (Fri.) evening updated its WatchTCM listings with the most current movies from the live-stream schedule, sans any Disney feature, of course. They must have gotten the message about the laps, but one surprise is that not even one Disney film survived to the 'watch later' list. Previously this year when there were Disney properties shown on TCM many survived the grueling rights agreements to make it to the coveted one week, watch-later status. What is the heck happened this time 'round? Did they revoke all on-demand streaming rights completely? How very selfish of th
  3. Mona.. this is exactly what I noticed also several days ago and mentioned it in a separate thread. I'm glad you put this up on the forum. At first I thought it had to do with not posting the Disney titles that were shown (that I missed unfortunately) but now I'm suspecting that: if it's not that the person that handles the website/WatchTCM service being on vacation, then it is that something nefarious is going on behind the scenes, like the PTB are quietly shutting down the service at the behest of the autocratic RW dictator from AT&T, for pure political reasons, just like they did to Fil
  4. Stephen, I did follow that link and figured out the OP's intention: to 'recommend' to TCM a movie to show (thank you), I thought initially she was saying there was an area to find recommendations of movie you'd want to possibly watch on TCM or elsewhere that would be of interest to one's particular tastes. What she really meant more specifically was the "Suggest A Movie" section. Hey, not difficult to be confused; it's a big, rugged world out there.
  5. Hmm Stephan, I would be very interested to know what you were trying to point out that was removed. Any chance you could attempt to re-post your thoughts herein (or had you covered it, above)? Thanks!
  6. I hope that TCM staff see this, what IS going on with that (see above)?
  7. What platform are you using to access WatchTCM? Roku, Android or Apple iStore app? Through the internet on a browser? I'm not familiar with a "recommended movie" section on any of these platforms. Are you going to the section that is titled "FILMS" within 'WatchTCM?' There is strange things going on with the service, as the films to be made available on WatchTCM have not been updated for three days; the last film to be posted was "Cover-Up."
  8. But it still really was odd! I had to disable the 'tracking blocker' for the "new" site, while the old site played the movies pretty much issue-free. With me, they will only "track" me playing one movie at a time; I don't know what they'll gain that they didn't already know about me? The hassle and grievousness was put on me! How did that provide them with any gain? (Rhetorical.) I will credit them for fixing streaming/buffering issues that plagued the service when I used Roku to access TCM. I now use a spare, somewhat high-end laptop with a superb dual-fan cooling pad and haven't seen the buf
  9. Sorry it took so long to get back, I've been out tryin' to make a buck, & take care of family members under my watch. Hope you got lucky and fixed the bug ( that no-one should have had to do, BTW. )
  10. Hi Stephan, it's real simple. Have a clean install of the latest Firefox browser, then when you see in the URL bar on the left a little icon that looks like a shield, just click on that and say you allow tracking. it will then turn into a shield with a red line across it, meaning that tracking protection is off. That is apparently what makes the TCM gods happy. Then, what you do after that is go to the Firefox Add-On area and install a tracking protector program that hides your information in some way. Sorry I can't recall which one I found, it is on the laptop I use for TCM only, and it's not
  11. I had a similar issue when I tried reporting that the "On Demand" movies were not loading after the site change. It was really odd because I never had an issue when using the same channel to communicate other site concerns before, that were swiftly dealt with once I reported them. The issue here recently using the 'contact' form was it simply did nothing after I hit send, like JavaScript hadn't loaded or my browser was incompatible, or something like that. Could it be that the site is now built to only work on Windoze 10 tablets, Android phones or iPads? leaving everyone else in the dust??
  12. Allow in-browser tracking permission and the movies will likely play, you can't do it with add-on settings like turning off ABP.
  13. OK, I finally figured it out, wow it took me all day, (wasted about six! hours on this.) Just like when Colombo had to watch the surveillance tape over and over to discover the mostly-hidden clue, what I detected as different here was that TCM was FORCING me to be tracked whenever I clicked a "play" button to run a video, something that was not required of my browser the way the old incarnation of the Movies On Demand site worked. Of course I feel this is rotten of Turner/TW/TCM or whoever owns and controls the network, because the spirit of TCM was to be commercial-free and thus non-exploitiv
  14. I'm an old computer hat: did all that stuff you mentioned; rebooted, turned settings on and off, cleared everything. I hadn't thought of trying Safari, so I'll do that. I even thought of installing Edge, but with a clean install of FF v60.0+ why should I bother? TCM shouldn't have rolled out this site re-design without fully testing it. It's obvious that it's broken. I could be spending my time better by watching great old movies instead of pulling my hair out over this site issue beyond my control. Of course, the wizards that manipulate the back-office web-designing never consider the end-use
  15. There's an old saying "if it ain't broke, don't "fix" it." It's too bad the folks operating the TCM website have never heard that one! There were lots of good movies I wanted to watch, all hope's gone now. I can't sit around and wait for what I want to watch to come on, that is why Movies-On Demand was such a great feature, and I am paying for it!
