Advertisements For reasons that likely have to do with re-runs and syndication, the networks are mistakenly anal about how long people can view programs in an on-demand format. It doesn't make sense to me, because it does not fit with how people want to actually use it. As you mentioned, many others would also like to have a mini-marathon and watch several shows in a row. I consider this a nice first step, and a filler for conflicts, but it is far from perfect. They still have a long way to go to get the gun target off the middle of their foot. This just pushed it up a hair. I am very happy they are doing it, but it does not go as far as it could, but beggars can't be choosers. Some day there will be a standardized delivery mechanism that allows all networks to feed their programming into it, securely and have it be playable on a number of different devices on the consumers end. We will get there, but it is still going to take some more time.
