Xfinity commercials say "watch all your favorite shows on demand with Xfinity".
NBC is owned by Comcast. You'd think that all NBC programs would be available on demand for Xfinity customers. However, they are not. None of the Law and Order shows are available and Harry's Law is also not available on demand. Why? Where's the advantage in being an Xfinity customer?

There is more to it than a network deciding what to release to On Demand.
For some shows the production company may not want it available via On Demand.
Comcast employees must be authorized to post in the forum in an official capacity. Employees posting here have their names in red and are designated as employees. Names not in red are customers.
This is done to protect customers and for assurance that they are dealing with a Comcast employee.
Non-Authorized Employees are allowed to post but cannot state they are employees nor can they allude to being employees.

Yeah. "All" has always been misleading. What was really annoying was when they had Jane Lynch (from Glee) doing their advertisements touting On-Demand and FOX wasn't even available On-Demand at the time. Then they had Neil Patrick Harris doing their advertisements and How I Met Your Mother wasn't (and still isn't) available On-Demand.
