What are These "Locked" Episodes I'm Seeing?

Below you will find the answers to several common questions regarding the availability of current season shows from FOX, ABC, ABC Family and NBCUniversal. These particular content providers have decided to enable even quicker access to catch-up episodes of current shows to viewers who have subscribed to a participating pay-TV service. By authenticating your account with one of these pay-TV services, eligible subscribers will now be able to watch episodes for several shows online, on PCs, the day after they air.


If you have a question that is not answered below, please feel free to contact our support team, who will be more than happy to help.
