??BBC America On-Demand -- Where Is It??

I just watched Torchwood, Children of the Earth, on BBC America (HD) [I have HD service but not HD tv]. During the program they advertised that the show could also be seen on BBC America On-Demand.

I have called the company twice to find out where it is located (under what category). No one seems to know.

I'm in eastern Massachusetts. We (the building) have had Verizon FIOS availability since last Fall. I've had FIOS three-way service for about 4 weeks now.

Thanks.

Well, first, Verizon doesn't even HAVE BBC America HD. Second, BBC America may advertise that they *offer* something "on demand" but that doesn't mean Vz carries it... It's not unusual for a channel/network to advertise their offerings while at the same your provider doesn't actually, well, provide it

P.S. I used the VOD search on "Torch..." and go zero results so it doesn't seem that Vz has it available.

The Blu-ray Disc of this comes out on July 28th. I'm just going to wait to watch that next week in HD and uncut.

Hopefully they'll add it in the future. When I first signed on they didn't have Adult Swim on-demand. Since then they added it and I can now watch ATHF & Superjail when I want to.

Re: ??BBC America On-Demand -- Where Is It??

BBC America On Demand is not available on FiOS, all 6 episodes (no extras) of the Torchwood series are available there until August 14th only. Anyhow they're not in HD so hopefully they'll repeat the series when providers actually carry the new BBC America HD. BBC America doesn't repeat series usually however.

I thought that A&E On Demand was also missing but instead of finding it under Entertainment I found it under Pop Culture.

I noticed NBC On Demand has more shows than ABC or CBS, but nothing under HDTV, too bad. There's actually quite a lot in On Demand on FiOS but not BBC America, yet.

The lack of VOD HD is the fault of the networks. They just don't understand that people would rather watch a show on a television, not a PC monitor at their desk. Verizon's Eric Rabe kind of alluded to this in his blog, when saying that VZ's policy is to get the networks to offer more VOD, rather than get a Hulu. I do kind of agree with him, because the video quality coming from Hulu would look horrible on a TV.

Actually it's pretty good. It is SD but it can look as good as SD from FIOS. And this is on a 67" DLP set. But I am also running everything through a external scaler before going to my TV.
