Tried to view a Comedy Central "Daily Show" episode "On Demand" and was greeted with a "Buy" option.
My service includes Comedy Central HD and I used to be able to watch old episodes of the Comedy Central shows offered in HD. I can still watch them for free in standard def.
Really strange because other network HD "On Demand" listed shows are operating normally (no need to Buy them). Just Comedy Central.
I thought maybe the Viacom thing was spilling over but a MTV HD On Demand show fired up for free.
I chatted with a support person who set up a trouble ticket for me. Not sure what they can do. Strange.

The same thing just happened to me except for I couldn't use Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon. . Friday 07/20/2012 worked fine, but on Saturday 07/21/2012 it was asking to buy subscription's.

that is going to be a coding issue on your account that only comcast can fix by calling them. try to unplug the box also to reset and see if that does anything.

I'm not thinking unplugging the box wouldn't really do anything - I have three HD boxes and every one of them greets me with the BUY option.
For grins I accepted the offer and hit "BUY" whereupon it responded with an message to call and report ERR-36895.
So I called. And the service rep asked me to unplug the box to retrieve the magic e-Lixer.
As if that would really work.
That only two shows out of many selections I've made (and I've watched these selections before) - that would be one mighty fine chunk of data base bits... but I could be wrong.
Maybe I should have a technician visit - but I'm not thinking I'd want to pay for that privilege.
