Why I hate On Demand

Message 1 of 1

I had decided to start watching Magic City on Starz on Demand last week since I had missed it during it's initial airing.  Normally I hate On Demand service and never use it, and my latest experience confirms why I don't.  I watched the first 5 episodes of Magic City last week.  12 hours later I sit down to watch the 6th episode and wouldn't you know it, the entire Magic City series is gone.  I thought maybe it was just a technical glitch so I checked back the next day.  Nope, everything is still gone.  So now I've been left hanging in the middle of the series.  This pretty much sums up why I use my DVR for everything.  On Demand is completely unreliable and unpredictable.  Some shows are missing random episodes, while other shows are missing entirely.  I really don't understand how anyone can put up with this service.  Shows come and go on a whim usually without warning.  I even checked for the dreaded expiration date on Magic City and none was listed.  And I know this type of situation is not specific to Verizon as I know people with other providers that complain about the same thing.
