MORE INCREDIBLE, AMAZING STREAMING SCREW-UPS by TCM

Recommended Posts

MORE INCREDIBLE, AMAZING STREAMING SCREW-UPS by TCM

Won't load, Won't play, On that Day's Schedule, but Not On the All Movies alphabetized titles List,

Ah so many just since last week... Where do I begin...
Perhaps I should just present the relevant portion of the TCM schedule Line by Line with a description after each listed feature.
With dates and a relative sequence, perhaps someone at TCM (assuming that this information ever gets that far) will better be able to trouble-shoot how these things happened, or at least upon whose "watch" they occurred (hint, hint, the "someone" that maybe "dropped the ball" or perhaps didn't know what they were doing in the first place???).

So aside from the other (hopefully unrelated) issues that are posted about in other recent threads, we have these NOT NEW (since it has happened like this before) Returning with a vengeance issues!

In a nutshell,
(#1) TCM is again showing at the end of a movie broadcast that it is ALSO AVAILABLE ON-DEMAND, and then NOT making it available ON-DEMAND (happened before, and most recently at the end and following this years 31 Days of Oscar, and again with NOAH'S ARK (1928) earlier this month, fortunately for viewers, TCM staff finally corrected most of those problems within a few days so we still had a small ON-DEMAND viewing window)

NOTE: refer to previous threads/posts for more detail on this.

(#2) TCM shows that a movie or short feature is AVAILABLE ON-DEMAND on the current or previous Days SCHEDULE (which is only available for viewing that day and backward viewing to the previous day) BUT the viewer is UNABLE to Load or Play the movie from the SCHEDULES ON-DEMAND play button, AND TCM Doesn't follow-up with the title by NOT Listing it in the ALL MOVIES Alphabetized Play List.

So the viewer unable to watch (or attempt to watch) any of these titles once they have vanished from that Days SCHEDULE!  

(#3) Entering one of these titles in the SEARCH FOR A FILM, ACTOR. ETC. box above the SIGN-IN button is relatively useless, as even when one of these titles reappears, it remains unloadable & unplayable.

(#4) Several of the titles that actually are "transferred" or "added" to the ALL MOVIES Alphabetized Play List still refuse to Load or Play, leaving a black screen.
Whereas some of those listed before and after the unplayable title will load and play as they should, to no apparent rhyme or reason???
Again that has happened before (and again relatively recently) with TCM ON-DEMAND, so refer back to previous threads and posts for more detail.

NOTE: some other viewers have posted similar BLACK SCREEN issues when trying to LIVE STREAM a movie... So this issue may be a broader streaming concern and NOT just affecting ON-DEMAND streaming.

Again, as REPEATED in Previous threads and Posts, this is NOT how TCM is supposed to operate (at least this is NOT how TCM states that they operate).
Per TCM HELP > General FAQs
http://www.tcm.com/watchtcm/help/#info

Movies are available on Watch TCM 7 days after they air on the TCM network on TV.
In most cases, movies are available within 3 hours after they air on the network, and then they are available for 7 days.

 

Per my experience these last few years using the WATCH TCM ON-DEMAND streaming those FAQs have been the general standard. But more and more often in recent months there have been these broad swaths of exception, where, for whatever reason, some person or persons at TCM apparently "drop the ball" causing or allowing such problems to occur.

The uninitiated viewer may think that the problem is at his or her end... But thanks to these boards we can cross check and verify many of these problems and assure ourselves that the problem too often originates with TCM.

Unfortunately we have no effective way to communicate more directly with anyone at TCM to even report these issues, and must rely and hope that a Moderator here will expeditiously mediate on our behalf....

A relatively simple solution to prevent or quickly correct such problems is to have well trained technical staff to begin with and/or at least well-trained Quality Assurance tech personnel to monitor the output, perhaps utilizing various commonly used test devices. Sadly, It appears that neither is the case!

Okay, enough subjectivity.
The following is a portion of my TCM schedule with NOTEs

................................


................................

Please be aware, that past experience has shown that sometimes after a day (or two, or three, or more) one or some of the "absent" titles will suddenly appear on the ALL MOVIES Alphabetized Play List (albeit with a highly truncated "viewing window").
And sometimes those already on that list that refuse to load and play one day may suddenly and mysteriously play normally at another time.
So if you have a favorite that you wanted to Watch ON-DEMAND, it may pay to frequently check back.
Of course if the "7-Day Viewing Window" has lapsed without correction, then that movie is lost until the next time when (hopefully) maybe, TCM really will make it AVAILABLE ON-DEMAND.

If Not, well there's the possibility that other ON-Line sources may have it (i.e. maybe Netflix or Amazon, YouTube, etc.) and the local library is a good place to borrow dvds for free. (Note: if your library doesn't currently have a title they still may be able to get it via an inter-library loan.
When TCM has burned me on a movie that I am really interested in watching I have often had luck with the library, so long as there is a commercial dvd available and if I am willing to be patient.

FELLOW VIEWERS, PLEASE POST ANY RELEVANT COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS ABOUT ANY OF THE ABOVE IN THIS THREAD!

MODERATOR, PLEASE CROSSCHECK ANY OF THESE MENTIONED TITLES, AND THEN PLEASE FORWARD THIS CONCERN TO WHOMEVER YOU THINK MAY BE WILLING AND ABLE TO HELP FIX THIS (AS SOON AS POSSIBLE)

Thank you


EDIT: 5/1/2018 Updated
* Post Updated 5/2/2018 to reflect added titles, remaining uncorrected titles, & any recent corrections by TCM.
** Post Updated 5/5/2018 to reflect added titles, remaining uncorrected titles, & any recent corrections by TCM.
Post Updated 5/6/2018,  5/7/2018, 5/8/2018, 5/9/2018, 5/10/2018, 5/11/2018, 5/12/2018, 5/13/2018, 5/14/2018,

 

If the current corrections are the result of Moderator assistance and reporting, please continue to help us by keeping TCM informed that many features still require correction to allow viewers to receive at least part of what we are paying for.

*** Moderator, though on-going corrections and a return to some "normalcy" is finally being observed, these problems still continue to persist. Please acknowledge in this thread whether or not you have been and are mediating for us.
I would like to know if the corrections that are being made are the result of your mediation on our behalf, or merely coincidental
(i.e. someone at TCM is actually trying to do things as they should, and correct and maybe prevent some of this, But not the result of your mediation or anything we have posted here)
I would like to know if any of our threads and posts are actually stimulating some beneficial action at TCM, or merely informing ourselves (viewers) that these issues are the result of TCM and NOT either their equipment, ISP, or TV Provider.
A Moderator acknowledgement one way or the other would be very useful feedback in this regard.
Sadly (No thanks to an Unresponsive TCM),  Board Moderators appear to be the ONLY avenue of any sort of communication with TCM left to us.
MODERATOR PLEASE RESPOND!

Thank you

SEVERAL CORRECTIONS OBSERVED, STILL MANY LEFT UNCORRECTED

I have updated my original post to reflect TCMs recent corrections.
This afternoon rechecked every title, and observed that several features from Friday through Sunday morning (4/6-4/29/2018) are now available ON-DEMAND and at least Load & Begin to Play.

NOTE: I don't have the time (nor interest) to watch every one of the movies that TCM broadcasts, but when I notice a problem with something that I would like to watch that is evidently "supposed" to be Available ON-DEMAND, I often check a few other titles surrounding it to assess whether or not it is an isolated issue or worse.
Under "normal" circumstances an ON-DEMAND movie will load and begin to play on my system within a few seconds. When checking I generally allow at least a minute to see if a movie will load and begin to play.
Unless I watch an entire feature I am unable to assess whether the stream remains consistent throughout.
So if someone notices repetitive problems (i.e. stuttering, freezing, sync issues, pixilation, etc.) please try to offer more specifics when posting (ISP/TV provider, specific times of occurrence, i.e. 5.32 min. into movie, etc.) can be even more helpful when cross-checking.

PLEASE refer to the OP for overall status updates.

Though TCM staff are apparently making an effort to "fix" these current problems, the original "viewing Window" remains unchanged, and therefore quite truncated. In this sense, those of us who subscribe to TCM for the ON-DEMAND streaming features are cheated again, whenever these problems are "allowed" to occur by TCM.  

Thus far the following Features still remain UNCORRECTED and UNVIEWABLE:

Thank you

5/5/2018 UPDATE:
MANY MORE CORRECTIONS & AN EFFORT TO RETURN TO "NORMALCY" OBSERVED, HOWEVER PROBLEMS STILL PERSIST AND SOME LEFT UNCORRECTED


Additional Updates: 5/8/2018, 5/9/2018, 5/11/2018, 5/12/2018, 5/13/2018,

I have updated my original post to reflect TCMs recent corrections.
I Have rechecked every title DAILY, and observed that numerous corrections have BELATEDLY been made, and MOST features are now available ON-DEMAND and at least Load & Begin to Play.

NOTE: I don't have the time to thoroughly check every one of the movies that TCM broadcasts, but when I notice a problem with something that I would like to watch that is evidently "supposed" to be Available ON-DEMAND, I often check a few other titles surrounding it to assess whether or not it is an isolated issue or worse.
Under "normal" circumstances an ON-DEMAND movie will load and begin to play on my system within a few seconds. When checking I generally allow at least a minute to see if a movie will load and begin to play.
Unless I watch an entire feature I am unable to assess whether the stream remains consistent throughout.
If someone notices repetitive problems please try to offer specifics when posting i.e. Title, description of specific problem/s & times of noticed occurrence (i.e. 5.32 min. into movie, etc.) Even your ISP/TV provider, can be of help when cross-checking.

PLEASE Refer to the Original Post for Overall Status Updates.

Though TCM staff are apparently making an effort to "correct" and "limit" the occurrence of  these current problems, the original "viewing Window" remains unchanged, and therefore quite truncated in many cases. In this sense, those of us who subscribe to TCM for the ON-DEMAND streaming features are cheated again, whenever these problems are "allowed" to occur by TCM.  

 

An interesting (and fortunately unusual) problem observed this last week were intro/outro cross-overs between FOUR different movies:

Mame ( 1974) Lucille Ball version  ON-DEMAND, but with Eddie Muller intro/outro to Hollow Triumph
5/1/2015 Stopped Loading & Playing, (Black Screen),
* Late 5/1/2015, will Load & Play Again,
**5/3/2015 Eddie Muller Deleted

listed Available on that Days Schedule, Will NOT LOAD or Play from that Button. AND showed up on the ALL MOVIES titles. When the title is entered into SEARCH FOR A FILM, above the Sign In, it DOESN’T pop up. 4/30/2018: now loads & plays, but has Eddie Muller intro For HOLLOW TRIUMPH (which will NOT load) then movie plays the Lucille Ball version of MAME (1974) at end of movie Eddie comes back on with outro to HOLLOW TRIUMPH.
5/1/2018, Stopped Loading & Playing.....
* Late evening, 5/1/2018 will Load & Play AGAIN, but Eddie Muller intro/outro For HOLLOW TRIUMPH remains.
**5/3/2018, Loads & Plays, BUT  Eddie Muller intro/outro For HOLLOW TRIUMPH now DELETED!


AND
Hollow Triumph ( 1948Listed on Schedule, but NOT ON-DEMAND,
5/1/2015 ON-DEMAND, Loads & Plays, but Eddie Muller intro/outro is absent here, was with MAME (1974)
listed Available on that Days Schedule, Will NOT LOAD or Play from that Button. AND Hasn’t (yet) Appeared on the ALL MOVIES titles. When the title is entered into SEARCH FOR A FILM, above the Sign In, it DOESN’T pop up. But Eddie Muller noir intro & outro shows up on Mame ( 1974) Lucille Ball version

ALSO
I Married A Witch ( 1942)   5/6/2018, ON-DEMAND, LOADS & PLAYS, But with BM intro/outro for I married a woman
AND
Star Is Born, A ( 1954)  5/6/2018, ON-DEMAND, LOADS & PLAYS, however BM intro/outro for  A Star Is Born (1937) version, NOT the (1954) version on the schedule & the on-demand movie is the 1954 NOT the 1937 version. (live intro was by alicia Malone for the correct 1954 movie)

Then the following relatively minor but strange intro/outro ON-DEMAND Host mix-ups

Three Faces of Eve, The ( 1957)  5/6/2018, ON-DEMAND, LOADS & PLAYS, however Dave Karger intro/outro, NOT alicia malone (this is sunday isn’t it (live intro was by alicia Malone)
Sunday in New York ( 1963) 5/6/2018, ON-DEMAND, LOADS & PLAYS, however BM intro/outro, NOT alicia malone (this is still sunday isn’t it? (live intro was alicia).
should alicia be worried? :unsure:

Guns of Navarone, The ( 1961)   5/12/2018, ON-DEMAND, LOADS & PLAYS, but embedded BM intro,  
dave karger did live intro,


ALSO an excessively "Unusual" abundance of tiny "WINDOW-BOX" formatted movies made available ON-DEMAND, beginning with last month (April 2018) and continuing through this month (May 2018).
Refer to thread on that topic for more details and complete list of titles noticed.

Sunday, 5/13/2018
***So Big ( 1932)  5/13/2018, on days schedule,  but not listed ON-DEMAND, won’t load or play, (black screen)

Monday, 5/14/2018

***Slipper and the Rose, The ( 1976)   5/14/2018, Already listed on days schedule,  but not listed ON-DEMAND, won’t load or play, (black screen)



Please be aware, that past experience has shown that after a day (or two, or three, or more) one, some or all of the "absent" titles may suddenly appear on the ALL MOVIES Alphabetized Play List (albeit with a truncated "viewing window" that can (and has) sometimes severely limited viewing time down to a single day, or less.)
And sometimes those titles already on that list that refuse to load and play one day may suddenly and mysteriously play normally at another time.
So if you have a favorite that you wanted to Watch ON-DEMAND, it may pay to frequently check back.
However, if the "7-Day Viewing Window" has totally lapsed without correction, then that movie is lost until the next time when TCM maybe really will make it AVAILABLE ON-DEMAND.

Of growing interest to disgruntled TCM ON-DEMAND viewers is  the possibility that other ON-Line sources may have titles that TCM refuses to make available ON-DEMAND (such as Netflix or Amazon or YouTube, etc.)
Also the local library is a good place to borrow dvds for free. (Note: if your library doesn't currently have a title they still may be able to get it via an inter-library loan.

When TCM has disappointed me on a movie that I am really interested in watching I have often had luck with the library, so long as there is a commercial dvd available and if I am willing to be patient.

FELLOW VIEWERS, PLEASE POST ANY RELEVANT COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS ABOUT ANY OF THE ABOVE IN THIS THREAD!

Thank you

NOTE TO TCM BOARD MODERATOR:
MODERATOR, PLEASE CROSSCHECK ANY OF THESE MENTIONED TITLES, AND THEN PLEASE FORWARD THIS CONCERN TO WHOMEVER YOU THINK MAY BE WILLING AND ABLE TO HELP FIX THIS (AS SOON AS POSSIBLE)

Moderator, though on-going corrections and a return to some "normalcy" is currently being observed, these problems still continue to persist.
Please acknowledge in this thread whether or not you actually have been and are mediating for us.
I would really like to know whether the corrections that are being made are the result of your mediation on our behalf, or merely coincidental
(i.e. someone at TCM is actually trying to do things as they should, and correct and perhaps even prevent some of these issues from occurring in the first place, But not by result of your mediation or anything we have posted here)
I would like to know if any of our threads and posts are actually stimulating some beneficial action at TCM, or merely informing ourselves (fellow viewers) that these issues are the result of TCM's dysfunctionality, and NOT caused by either our equipment, ISP, or TV Provider.
A Moderator acknowledgement one way or the other would be very useful feedback in this regard.

Sadly
(No thanks to a hitherto Unresponsive TCM),  Board Moderators appear to be the ONLY avenue of any sort of communication with TCM left to us.
MODERATOR PLEASE RESPOND!

Thank you

NOTE: UPDATED for Corrected Features & UNCORRECTED ADDITIONS: 5/8/2018, 5/9/2018, 5/11/2018, 5/12/2018, 5/13/2018,

I have decided to cease Updating this thread regarding the original post.

My intent was to have a posted record of at least one month's chronological duration so that if this information were in-fact forwarded to TCM that it would better assist "someone" there in determining the root of the occurrence of such on-going and chronic issues.
But I was stymied last Monday (5/14/2018) when TCM threw another curve and prohibited any of us from "signing-in" for ON-DEMAND viewing...
Though this only lasted for a couple of days, it gave me time to do other more constructive things with my time, while reflecting upon the futility of my effort here. 

TCM obviously does NOT read anything that we post here, and despite repeated requests for TCM Moderator feedback that they are at least forwarding our concerns to TCM, the Moderators remain "silent," giving me the impression that they are NOT.
That being the case the only possible benefit of such threads and posts is to commiserate with fellow TCM ON-DEMAND viewer/subscriber/posters here, that "we" are sadly far from alone within this experience.

If that is all that can be expected, then my recent threads and posts have likely (at least) accomplished that mission, and so long as they remain upon these boards can be referred back to (by any posters who read them) that many of the similar problems they may be experiencing have likely happened before and sadly, will likely happen again....

I FACETIOUSLY THANK THE TCM MODERATORS HERE FOR THEIR OBVIOUS LACK OF RESPONSE, AND EVIDENT LACK OF CONCERN and SUPPORT! 
It appears that if TCM does not care about any of these problems, then why should "they" be bothered by any of them either? :(
