No CBS On Demand

I am very disapointed in AT&T since they do not have a contract with CBS to broadcast CBS On Demand.  A great salesman convinced me to switch from Comcast to AT&T saying that they had all the same features and more.  What a lie now.  Why are only a few states have access to CBS ON Demand?

I hope that great salesman gave you that in writing.

 

CBS apparently only offers On Demand in areas where CBS owns and operates the stations (CBS O&O)  That has been CBS's call since U-Verse's inception, in 2007.  I do not expect that to change.  CBS's website has most of the shows, available that way.  Maybe your TV has an HDMI in port, so you could hook a computer to it?

Re: No CBS On Demand

A solution is to subscribe to CBS all access if you have a streaming player.  You have two options one with commercials for 5.99 per month or one without commercials for 9.99 per month.  You receive more programs then you would get if they had it on demand.  It is worth the fee to me.  So check it out and see if it is something you world find worth the fee.
