Episodes & Seasons Missing on SOD

I'm wondering why there are so many SOD shows with gaps between episodes and even whole seasons? Starting a series at S3E14 is no fun. It would be nice to start at the beginning and watch to the end.

Good morning,

Unfortunately Shaw is only able to offer the seasons and episodes that the network makes available to us, depending on their licensing. Each network has their own rules and practices as to what they make available - some networks have full rights and allow us to offer full back catalogues starting from Episode 1, and others may only make (for example) the three last episodes available for the current season. You may even notice differences within a network, as their rights and licensing may differ based on the originating network (for example, Global generally offers the full current season of a show, with the exception of shows that originate on FOX).

Hey tuliptwy,

Just to add to Katie's reply above. We do have our full SOD library available on https://vod.shaw.ca/. Is there a certain show/series you are looking for?

Cheers,

Thank you Tony. There are more than a few, but Katie's response explained it's not something fix-able. 😕 Thanks again.

That said, if you think something is amiss, like episodes 1-3 and 5-6 are available (missing 4), that's something that would definitely need to be fixed!

Thanks!

Season 9 of Suits said that episode 7 was coming, then it dissapeared. Then it said episode 8 was coming. Now theres only episode 6. Why would it show the first 6, then say 7 will be available on Wednesday, then it never shows up. Then the same thing happens to episode 8.

@Steve05 Apologies for the inconvenience, I have confirmed with our team that episode 7 will be available shortly (likely later today sometime), and episode 8 is available currently.
