    The YouTube link is from Sony Pictures Entertainment. And they turned off comments...LOL I wanted to read what others had to say. Mostly about its availability.

    This is at least the second for Spectrum, but I agree it’s odd. They also have LA’s Finest which is a police procedural starring Gabrielle Union as her character from Bad Boys and her partner is played by Jessica Alba.

    Edit: Spectrum has also hinted that these may become available elsewhere in the future once the exclusivity window is over.

    DirecTV/ATT has a channel that shows original material from time to time. They're currently showing Mr. Mercedes, a Stephen King based series.

    Didn't Mad About You end with a finale that flash-forwarded to when they were older and divorced?

    Not sure about that, but Will and Grace ended their original run with a flash forward that was ignored for the reboot. They can certainly do that here as well.

    It's not about time, it's about surgeries. Surely you realized that's what I meant.

    I was trying to figure out this thing, as I do have Spectrum (Charter) for cable tv. But is it some kind of separate 'app' that you have to download? I got on a page with that second link that Weaver posted above and on the sign-in page it just kept not progressing when I logged in with my Spectrum account ID/PW.

    I pay way too much money to Spectrum every month (tv, landline, internet) to have to pay another fee so if that is what the deal is, I'm out.

    Did you create a username? That link is from the Spectrum sign-in page.

    It’s the same Spectrum app that you’d use for on-demand content. (I never use it since I have everything recorded on my TiVo). No extra charge though.

    Allanon - No, I just used the logon that I already had with my account. I was hoping that was what they wanted.

    RB - Ahh, I see. Ok, that explains it a bit. With Tivos (cablecard in lieu of cable box) we don't get on-demand here with this carrier. That really sucks and I've even asked them about it years ago and it would seem that if you are using CCs you are SOL as far as any on-demand and that will never change.

    Will look at one of the cable-box TVs to see if it's there with on-demand. I hate having to do that, as it's this little 19" tv in the kitchen. I sure wish they would make OD available through a cablecard.

    Thanks to you both for the info. :)

    couldn't you still watch through a browser on your pc, or a phone app?

    I might do it on my laptop. I only have 15" laptops now and, while it wouldn't be a nice, relaxing tv-viewing type experience I can do it every now and then. Or, maybe my laptop will hook up to my tv . I've yet to check that out.

    No can do on watching tv on my phone, though. Wayyyyy too small! hehe :)

    I wish they would just put the channel up on the cable line-up without having to make it a totally separate thing. Sure, I can see having a separate, for-pay, channel for those who don't have them as their cable carrier. For all the money we pay them, it would be the least they could do.

    The explanation I read (in anticipation of the revival) was, they were separated but not divorced.

    Actually I didn't think you'd delve into the TMZ zone or otherwise get judgmental about the decisions people make to make them feel better about themselves as they age.

    Yes.

    Yes.

    Don't know, but it refuses to validate unless I'm actually connecting through Spectrum. When I'm connecting through AT&T fiber, it rejects my advances. There might be different validation for Internet-only subscribers.

    Back in the 20th century, Theta Cable had original programming for their cable access channel, but I don't think that's what you meant. As far as professionally produced series with high production values, I think it's a new thing.
