Ok, I know I complained about this last season, but I cannot record the show on my DVD recorder again. This time I definitely get a message on my screen telling me, "Nonrecordable movie, cannot record". So I guess my local AMC channel on Comcast doesn't allow it - curious if they are ok with recording it on their own DVR equiptment. I guess iTunes owns me again this year.
I am a Comcast victim/subscriber as well*, and I have no trouble recording MM on the DVR they supplied.
On a different subject, a post in another thread mentioned watching the show on AMCHD. Does such a thing exist? Comcast doesn't carry it - at least not in my area. I know it's expensive to broadcast in HD, but why wouldn't a cable company offer it if the network provides it? It seems to me that offering as many HD channels as possible is a major selling point for cable. (And holy cow, what a difference it makes. After watching the DVDs, it took a good 15 minutes for me to get past the blurry, small image on non-HD AMC and start fully enjoying the episode.)
*I obligatorily say "victim" because all the Stuff White People Like
people loathe their cable company, and only former Young Republicans - and not cool libertarian types, either, but the junior corporate executive variety - would ever have anything good to say about it. In reality, however, <small voice> I have no problem with Comcast and am generally quite happy with the vast variety of entertainment they bring me </small voice>.
