Episodes appear on Primetime On Demand as soon as the day after their original air date and remain on the service for up to four weeks. Primetime On Demand is available at no additional charge to Bright House Networks Digital Video customers.

"We are pleased to be able to offer these popular prime-time shows for free anytime," said Kevin Hyman, Executive Vice President, Cable Operations.
