I have had a hard time keeping up with the new Walking Dead Series on AMC because my Sunday nights are generally reserved for family and kids and I have had a hard time adjusting my schedule to the new zombies TV series. I missed the very first episode and have been searching for a place to watch it ever since. I realize I can pay to watch the new TV show on my Xbox Live Zune movie service but I have a real problem with paying for a televised episode that I could watch for free on the station at its regular time schedule. I just can’t fathom paying for a tv episode at this point in my life.
I would rather watch the free version with commercials and everything than to waste my money on a tv show. I pay for movies because they are better when you rent them but paying for a tv show is out of bounds when you realize its only an hour long and when you subtract the commercials you get about 45 minutes of content. Not exactly a good deal when you consider I could just as easily have recorded the episode if I had just set an alarm or even told my wife to remind me. My TV has a schedule on it but the darn thing only goes out a week in advance so I have to wait until today or possibly tomorrow before I can schedule the next episode to start on its own.
Now I find out that Zune users are having issues with the latest episode not being available or worse in some cases people are being made to pay twice for the same episode. That my friends is a major mistake for Zune to be making right now. A glitch like that can cost them some valuable subscribers to the fledgling subscription video service from Microsoft and is a surefire way to generate some negative publicity at this important pre holiday season. Let’s hope they get this sorted out soon or Walking Dead may be the final nail in the Zune coffin.
I woke up this morning bright and early to watch Episode 3 of The Walking Dead [ Walking Dead Episode 3 Review ] and was frankly shocked when I loaded up my Xbox and the latest episode Tell it To The Frogs was not available for me to watch. I paid for the entire season up front so that I could get each episode and when the 3rd episode wasnt downloaded I thought perhaps I missed something or had a glitch.
I posted this morning about it and readers have been writing in complaining that I am very much not alone. I can tell you that as of now 5:30pm EST Walking Dead Episode 3 is still not available and Microsoft is apparently not concerned.
