    I’m missing content from ABC on my SuddenLink VOD. My first symptom was a missing ‘Castle’ episode (2/6/12, ‘The Blue Butterfly’). Now I see that I’m missing ‘Revenge’, ‘Body of Proof’, ‘Once Upon a Time’. I’ve checked everywhere and can’t find a report of a problem.
    What’s up?

    • Pete says

      I apologize for the confusion. As of Jan. 31, ABC stopped sending us Free on Demand content for their broadcast network shows. We certainly hope they’ll reconsider, but as of now, they’re holding out for more money, which obviously runs counter to the idea of “free” content.

        Thanx – This is the first I’ve been able to get a definitive answer. Nobody else is talking and it has not made it to the news media.
