Can't watch many shows on demand anymore

Over the past few weeks a lot of shows I used to watch on demand from "My Library" do not allow on demand viewing. When you go to My LIbrary, they tell you the next "air date" rather than allowing you to just watch shows that have already aired. The biggest channels this is happenign with are AMC and History. Example. I used to be able to watch current and past seasons of Mountain Men and The Walking Dead on Demand., Now, either all episodes are either gone, or list a next air date only.

Why is this happening? Watch TV is pretty much useless if I have to use it like cable without a DVR. I'm supposed to be getting free Watch TV as a benefit of paying for an unimlited data plan. This is not a benefit at all any longer as I wind up buying shows form iTunes when they are not available.

the on demand content is controlled by the networks not the provider and they pull different programs at their will,
