What Happened to Rockford on Prime?
Posted by: mrlynn

We've enjoyed revisiting old Rockford Files shows on Amazon Prime. There were commercials, for IMDb-TV, which we put up with. But suddenly, Rockford disappeared. Looking it up, I see the notice, "This video is currently unavailable in your location." Huh? Whats up with that? What's my 'location' got to do with it?

I know, in the great scheme of things, a minor annoyance. But for me, a puzzlement.

Looks like it moved to Peacock.
There is a free tier with ads.
We have been watching Columbo.

We've been watching Columbo on Prime (with ads). Wonder if this means that Columbo will disappear, too. Guess I'll sign up for Peacock.

I've watched it on COZI-TV, which is owned by NBC.

iirc, Comcast cable patsies get some form of Peacock for free.

Too bad, I've been watching Rockford there, as well. One of the best written shows, as I still remember the episodes and characters decades later.

Guess I'll have to hook up that free Peacock device that Comcast sent me.

Comcast sends me emails seemingly every other day with a nag message to get one.
What I just read on clark.com, there's no real downside to getting it just whether
it's useful beyond getting Peacock Premium for free.

I have Peacock Free on my LG TVs but apparently using the Flex device gets me
Peacock Premium for free.
