Your directtv doesn't have a BBCA ondemand channel?
Some cable systems don't offer BBC America On Demand in all areas either (especially if they think those areas are either too urban or too rural).
Only people in the burbs understand the British.
South Central LA reporting, you don't get much more "urban" then us. We get it.

I know we have to get the network to get Luther

It was a joke.

Luckily my cable company doesn't think that way.

Do you have BBC America On Demand or just the on-air channel? It's the BBCA On Demand that isn't available everywhere.

Re: I screwed up and missed Broadchurch!!

I was about to ask if you have On Demand. I just caught up with it that way (the first episode was gone when I started but I found it on youtube). Otherwise, I really want to watch all of it now

We have on demand with directv but have never used it. Never needed to.

Now it's time to use it, I suppose.

At least Fios is rapidly vanishing. Episode 1 was missing when I started watching. After the second day, episode 2 vanished too. So you may want to check if the program still available.

Re: I screwed up and missed Broadchurch!!

I missed an episode, too. On Demand had episode 1, but none of the others. I contacted my cable company and BBCA and got episode 3 about a week later. It's hit or miss with On Demand. It's like episodes are made available if a flaky person remembers and bothers to do so.

It could be some part of a licensing agreement where the original broadcaster has the opportunity to re-run before any other outlet can run it.

I'm just made all that up, so I could be way off.

FWIW, it appears that ITV's website allows you to rent episodes for a pound thirty each, so it's possible to catch it that way. You can also buy them on Amazon for about the same price (2 dollars American), but you have to wait until BBC America airs it first.

On Demand depends more on your local cable provider and who provides them with their pay-per-view and on demand service. Episodes of some shows can be lost, delayed, or even corrupted if they're sent in a huge batch of episodes from other shows, movies, and specials. Calling your local cable provider works, but more often than not they have to call their PPV/VOD provider.
