I'm  a huge TCM fan . I love movies of the 1940's & 50's and was wondering why TCM isn't posting the year of each film when your looking at the tv?  They used to do this all the time but aren't doing it now.  I think classic film fans like seeing the date the film was made / released.....it's a plus for us.  Hopefully this will be fixed.  Thanks for reading my post. 

 

Sincerely,

What do you mean by "when your looking at the tv"?        I've been watching TCM for decades and I have never seen such a year listed while "looking at the tv".

I do see the year on the on-line TCM Schedule  and if there is an intro the host will usually comment about the year the film was released.

So I'm confused what you're expecting here.

Hi James....I mean when you tune into the channel...next to the film title the year of the film is always listed.  The channel isn't doing it anymore.  Sometimes it's there....sometimes it isn't.  It's a sporadic problem.  Thanks.

I believe such info doesn't come directly from the channel but instead the cable company or company that is providing the overall T.V. service.

I've noticed the release year on most TCM movies are incorrect as well!  I have been a fan of TCM for over 20 years and find this recent lack of providing the usual correct release date disheartening and confusing to the dedicated viewer. People have the right to be provided with correct information, particularly since TCM is a Classic movie provider.  Whoever or whatever who started this confusing mistake kindly go back and correct this!  Thank you for the consideration to this matter.

Love your Username.   "A  Patch of Blue," has been one of my favorite movies for many years.

Welcome to you and Tcountry.    Stick around,  I don't post a lot myself, but there are movie experts here who I learn something from every day.

You can see the year of release if you search TCM schedule on your laptop or phone. I would assume if you're talking about some kind of bar or banner that pops up probably at the bottom of your scren when you change your TV to TCM, that information or lack of it is provided at the discretion of your cable or streaming provider and is not TCM's fault.
