Network Not Listed on On-Demand

Does anyone know why CBS is not listed on On-Demand?  I looked under Primetime and Networks and CBS is not listed there or anywhere else that I could see.  Thanks.

Re: Network Not Listed on On-Demand

I guess they call them Smart TV's because one needs to be a rocket scientist to figure out what to do with it, lol. All I know is I hooked my computer to the TV and the only thing I can do is program it from my puter. I tried the netflix app, but couldn't get it to work. I guess the TV is smarter than me............................YIKES!!!!!!!

I don't know what they are watching on CBS, but it's nothing we like to watch in our home. The only time we watch CBS is for local news and that Sunday Morning Show, and that's about it. There's NO other shows that interest my wife and I on CBS. We're sick of reality shows, competition shows, game shows, or whatever other type of junk they show. The BIG 3, NBC, CBS, ABC have NO shows that interest us anymore, besides local news, that's it. There's so many other channels with better content than watching reality shows and singing competitions. It's been done to DEATH!!!! And then some. However, people can watch anything they want. There's information shows, DIY shows, movies, etc, etc, etc, to watch. Shows that you learn stuff, nature shows, Nat-Geo Channels, etc.

 

We all have a choice, and CBS is NOT one of them, at least in my house. I'm happy there so many different type of shows/movies to watch. There was a time, and I bet only a few of you remember, that there was only 4 channels to watch. ABC, CBS, NBC, and Public TV. That was it, I was brought up watching those channels. It wasn't till I was 20 that the first cable company came out. Oh, they had something called Subscription TV. You had a box on top of you TV and if you wanted to watch a movie you had to put coins into the box and it would unscramble the reception. Otherwise it would be all lines, pixels and stuff so you couldn't watch it. That only lasted a year or so, then the first cable company came out. But it was only in one town in our state. Eventually we all got it, but it took forever.

 

Well that's my story and I'm sticking to it, lol. I did go on a little long, but I think you got my point. For the life of me, I don't know what so good on CBS.........................

I live in central CT and we don't have CBS in our line up of On Demand Networks either. All the other "Local" networks are there, just not CBS. However, there's really nothing on CBS worth watching or recording anyway......

Re: Network Not Listed on On-Demand

I believe you man, lol, lol. But there's NOTHING on CBS Prime Time that interest me, ok??? No need to try and shove it down my throat!! For my wife and I, there is NOTHING worth watching on prime time CBS, or any programing during the day time hours either that's worth watching for either one of US!! Why are you trying to "sell" me on CBS? To me, it's ALL crap programing that's not in our taste of shows to watch, is that ok with you?

 

Sheesh,

Re: Network Not Listed on On-Demand

I have to agree. TV stinks. The shows I like are all on the premium channel like Boardwalk Empire, True Blood, Dexter and of cause movies and all without commercials so I am not interrupted every few minutes about some fool talking about his upset stomach.  When I watch a program or TV show I want to see the entire show without interruptions. when shows leave the premium channels for regular TV everything is beeped out so you can not enjoy your program. I just wish I had the option of getting just the premium channels.  If you even take the smallest package and by the time you add all the premium channels it is more expensive then the U450 which has all the premium channels.  That is just my opinion.

I have the U450 package and last months bill was $280.00!!! That was with $14.00 in on demand movies, and $7.00 for going over 250 minutes on our landline, which I didn't even know I had a limit. Plus with the U450 package you get the sports channels, a whole bunch of them too, which I do NOT watch. I called AT&T and asked if I can get a discount if I don't want them, but that didn't go over too well. The rep suggested getting the next lower package and add the movies channels, but like you said, it would cost me more doing it that way, grrrrrrrrr!!!! The phone thing really set me off because it wasn't like that when I first got Uverse several years ago. It was just recently I saw that we were going over the 250 minute block of calls.

 

Plus all that money I pay, the TV picture still messes up!! The HD TV we have in the bedroom messes up so bad we have to watch TV in SD instead of HD. I tried all the troubleshooters without any luck. I guess I'll have to call for service, but when I did before they walked me thru the troubleshooting. It fixed it for about a week or two, then it was back to the same thing. The main TV in the Den is ok, it's just the HD TV in the bedroom that gets all pixeled and freezes all the time. I'm having second thoughts about keeping AT&T, but that means I'll have to get local cable which is just as bad. The worse was DirectTV, even the threat of a storm the TV picture would go out!!! All this just to watch TV, lol..........................

Thanks Chris, I did what you suggested and waiting for an answer. I'm going to try and switch boxes with the third TV and see if that box works better. It's can't hurt, lol...

 

Thanks again,

Re: Network Not Listed on On-Demand

Well Chris, I contacted customer service by the link you provided, and received my new boxes yesterday, 09/07/13 just as promised. After some snags I got everything hooked up and running. And that fixed all my problems. I guess my old boxes were at the end of thier service and needed replacing. And the best part is it cost me ZERO!!!

 

I can't thank you enough Chris for the link, for the first time I can remember, customer service was NOT a nightmare to work with at all!!! They were very helpful and gave me options to hook them up myself or have a tech come out. I chose to install them myself and it all worked out for the best!!!!

 

Enjoy the rest of your weekend Chris,

ROK
