The Global Worldwide Headquarters was all abuzz when the hardworking staff learned that Comcast had expanded its On Demand roster to include ABC’s Castle along with Fox’s Bones and The Chicago Code (and maybe even more – check with the Missus).
But then, the buzzkill: While watching The Chicago Code, we of course tried to fast-forward through the first set of commercials, only to encounter this on-screen announcement:
VCR Controls Not Operational
Or some such.
So we had to wait out the commercial break, which was longer than a Charlie Sheen marriage.
We’re not disputing Comcast’s right to offer advertisers better exposure to viewers.
But this is sort of bait-and-can’t-switch in terms of the previous On Demand experience.
Your demand goes here.
