    Still impossible to watch, freeze up all the time, I give up trying to watch it, after trying for so many times now. I don't have problems with other Channel 5 on Demands, they run smooth

    Subtitle users: Perhaps a facebook page is needed to show just how C5 disability discrimination can effect them?, interesting to note C5 does not have its own pages on FB or Twitter... funny that is it not!. I see C5 does not want complaints about this program, somehow..., must be a technical hitch, you cannot actually 'Report a problem' here. Do not imagine my post will be available for long, which is why I have taken a screen shot, but it will not stop face book. If you, C5, want to use the email provided, to 'contact' me, then please also add a list of programs that do have working subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing, not the usual % rubbish that is a fob off and misleading. I await the outcome and look forward to a response from C5. In the mean time, I shall be taking this matter to ofcom, Action on hearing loss and Disability Rights UK, which ALL other deaf people here should do instead of accepting this treatment and/or just moaning on here.

    TO EVERYONE THERE IS NO SECOND PART IF YOU WATCHED THE FILM PROPERLY YOU WOULD SEE THATS IT FINISHED COMPLETELY. WHERE DOES IT SAY ON CHANNEL FIVE THAT IT WAS A TWO PART OR MORE??? And the fiilm ojn tv was over 3 hours but on here for 2 1/2 hours because there are a lot of adverts on tv.

    Can't watch 5 Demand because I should have "Adobe Flash Player 10.01 or greater", however when I try to get this player I find that my device (iPad) does not support it! Don't need Adobe with BBC iplayer and never usually watch Channel 5 and got it recorded on my Humax so won't be coming back.

    Why are there so many angry comments about the film being truncated? Everything is there, all 2.5 hours!! Are you talking about Ch. 5 or Sky or some other channels? 5 on Demand is showing the entirety, so perhaps those people should take their grievances elsewhere?

    So much confusion with these comments. Just watched this film here and it is in full. Its 2.32.53 long as the player says, NOT 3hr 5mins as stated on the side, so dont worry.

    Watched sky on demand and it ended with 'to be continued' but we can't even find listings for the continuation There was no prior warning to suggest it was only part 1. How the hell do we find out when the next episode is available to watch?

  • j wood

    just watched this on anytime and it ended after 77 mins. The 'film' last saturday lasted for three hours. where is the other half of the film? Is it a film? or is it part of a series? How annoying to sit and watch something only to have it come to an abrupt and incomplete end, then have to spend time searching around for any info, even phoning sky, without any resolution. This looked like it was a film, and there was no indication to say otherwise. I am getting really fed up with tv channels playing silly games with its viewers. When is the other half of this film on please?

  • Alan

    over 1 year ago

    Ridiculous. No warning it wasn't going to be concluded in one. And no indication as to when I can watch next episode In fact how many episodes are there? 2,3,6?? Get it sorted please.

    I can confirm I just watched the rest after reading Whobe's comment. It was on the sky on demand channel 5 catch up. I did have to wait for it to download a bit before it got to where the first episode left off. It is available now though. Enjoy

    Sounds like Channel 5 have posted the full feature here, as it was broadcast, but Sky have only posted half of it. Think your beef might be with Sky's On Demand service rather than Channel 5's...

    I've just watched this and it seemed to be the full story, it was 2 hrs 33mins with no adverts. Maybe ch5 have amended it. Enjoy.

    Gob smacked! No warning on movies on demand that it was a 3 parter, looked like a full 90 minute film. Furious with Sky for not making it clear & furious with C5 for not having the next part scheduled yet. Ridiculous!!!

    So will we be able to see the last two hours (or two parts) ever? This is a three parter shown by Channel 5 as a three hour film instead, but on demand you just get the first hour (or first part). MAJOR MAJOR mess up somewhere!!!! And then also the no subtitles!!!!!

    When i first saw the ad for this i was really looking forward to it expecting a series, then we watched it on demand and thought it must be a short film , about 90 mins. Only to realise it was a series but when is the second part to be aired? surly its either a nightly or weekly thing? I cant find it?

    I love Stephen King and was so disappointed that I could not watch it as it has no subtitles. I rely on subtitiles as i am hard of hearing. Surely this contravenes the Disablitly discrimination Bill? I am so cross.

    What's the point of showing us the first part (I actually thought it was a film!) and then not continuing with the story. Can anyone tell me what is going on? There is nothing i hate more, than to be engrossed in a good plot and then ..voila! No more info on any following decent ending??? WHAT??

    Service from Demand 5 is dreadful. Strange that the adverts stream smoothly and without any problems at all. When I got passed the adverts it buffered for 10 minutes and then showed only 1-2 minutes bits without further buffering, after persevering for some time it finally stopped altogether at about 29 minutes and would not reload. Channel 5 again demonstrates its ineptitude and pointless existence. With service like this Channel 5 deserves to get ripped off by download sites that can stream it smoothly and without any hassle. Time to give it up or get your house in order Channel 5!

    Very disappointing for Stephen King. I was watching on catch-up and had to leave it for half an hour. When I came back it wouldn't re-start and when I re-entered it, it started from the beginning! I found the first half boring so definitely wouldn't start from scratch.

    The moderator has been busy I see, removing content that's not allowed. Meaning that C5 is aware of the complaints and still no response? In my opinion, a very unprofessional and a 3rd rate chanel so far. I'd be more than happy to complete a 'how did we do' questionnaire!
