For the second year in a row the XBox Live Video on Demand system has screwed me out of my Walking Dead. I have been watching the series on Xbox live since the first season of The Walking DEad because like a lot of you I can not afford cable.
I run a horror blog which means all my spare money goes into it because running a blog is a lot of time, money and work as everyone who contributes to this site knows.
Last year Walking Dead Season 2 on XBOX was a fiasco with episodes being delayed by days which is a bit frustrating since when you write for a horror blog and have a facebook community of almost 23,000 friends it is very hard to avoid spoilers. That said I lived with it.
This year however things have gone to a brand new low. The latest episode of Walking Dead Season 3 as of last night had still not appeared on my Xbox. I was needless to say a little bit annoyed. One of our friends on Facebook mentioned he to had that problem but that it had just recently appeared. So last night I logged in to see for myself and low and behold it wasnt there.
I decided to do some more snooping and the answer I found frankly, pissed me off. XBOX Live will give me the new episode, I just have to pay twice. I bought the entire season of Walking Dead Season 3 up front and it would seem that XBOX is now trying to double charge me.
How does on complain to Xbox Live and get a real person? Who knows! Will I be re-considering streaming on XBOX Live from now on? Yes. Perhaps Amazon Prime or ITunes would be better choices.
Anyone else having this problem? Does anyone have a solution? Hit the comments!
