    What primetime networks ondemand are available on D* and if any ,are they next day air,a couple of days later or weeks behind like uverse (especially NBC)?

    Also are all National channels (USA,TNT,BET,TVLand,etc) available ondemand even including channels that are not in your package?

    I know some cable providers that let you watch everything ondemand (excluding premiums)even if its not in your package.

    Reason I ask is ,I'am getting Mas Ultra because my family made a compromise due to half my household being fluent in spanish and I see some shows that I watch like on TVland thats not in the mas ultra package and I'am hoping I can watch those shows ondemand...Thanks.

    You need to subscribe to the channel to get the on demand version.

    CBS, NBC and ABC are available on demand. It varies per show and per network on when it's posted.

    For ABC usually it first shows up a few days after it airs and it's a version that's an exact copy of how it aired on TV with the commercials that are not skippable, about 3 days later a commercial free version shows up.

    and none of the local networks have their content on HD, even if it was broadcasted on HD

    if that was the case, nobody would subscribe to a higher package that included the channels

    and if the VOD was on HD, what would be the justification?

    Really? I've never seen one that does. But there are a lot of cable companies out there? Anyone know of one that does this?

    Of course cause it makes no sense. Like the post above ^^^, I have yet to see a provider that gives out just the VOD content without actually subscribing to its "parent" channel
