Did you get cut off from watching Season 2 of Polyamory: Married & Dating? You are not alone. Here are 4 things you can do about it!
Three Millions homes in Dallas, Los Angeles, New York and other areas can’t access their local CBS stations or Showtime due to a dispute over fees with Time Warner Cable.
CBS is the number one network while Showtime is one of the most acclaimed networks in America and they are at a dead end in negotiations with Time Warner, the largest provider in the country. And millions of consumers are changing providers or because of CBS’s near monopoly, many outraged viewers are simply cutting their cable packages.
Thousands of fans of Showtime’s Polyamory: Married & Dating don’t have a legal alternative to get the latest episodes, unless they know someone who gets Showtime from a satellite or cable provider other than time warner, and can watch it with them.
If you are lucky enough to find such a friend, you might just ask to move in to watch “Dexter,” “Under the Dome,” “Homeland” and “Big Brother” since they have also been blacked out.
WHAT TO DO IF YOUR MISSING OUT ON SHOWTIME’S POLYAMORY?
1) Contact Time Warner Cable and Bright House Networks Customers and let them know you are outraged !!
2) Change your Cable Provider to one that currently carries SHOWTIME:
The best alternatives are: AT&T, Uverse & DirectTV Verizon
3) Find a Poly Friendly person who gets Showtime and can host a viewing party!
People are using social media and MeetUp groups to get together to watch the show. Simply Tweet or FB post something like this:
“Help–Who gets Showtime? Looking for a local place to watch Polyamory, Thursday Night’s at 11pm–Sharing is caring!”
The San Diego Family has rented out a whole theater and will be hosting a premiere party this weekend! Open to any/everyone in the So. Cal area! For tickets and info CLICK HERE.
4) Wait for it.
Most Showtime programs eventually make their way online, either through Netflix or other On Demand programing. I do not advocate for piracy or illegal means of watching the show, but many of our out of country fans and viewers feel they have no legal choice.
According to theNew York Times, the “focus of the dispute” is the rights to programming packages that CBS sells to on-demand services like Netflix and Amazon. “Time Warner Cable wants to gain access to that content; CBS insists it would mean Time Warner Cable was getting for free something it sells for hundreds of millions of dollars to on-demand services,” says Thursday’s article.
Also, there are also DVD Box sets. Polyamory: Married & Dating is not currently available online, unless you have Showtime Anytime, but you can write Showtime and let them know you would be willing to purchase the box set.
I know, I know, waiting can be so painful…but Season 2 of Polyamory is worth it! Besides CBS’s regular game season begins on Sept. 8, and I can’t imagine the network will withstand millions of outraged football fans for long!!
