What shows are available to watch online?

Comedy has a wide-range of content including full episodes, exclusive clips, and behind-the-scenes extras.

 

When do full episodes become available for viewing?

The timeframe varies from show to show and channel to channel, but most content will appear online twenty four hours after it airs. Check the Latest/Most Recent collection of Videos for the latest available clips and episodes. New content is added often, so make sure you keep checking back for new clips and exclusive content!

 

Can I share clips from Comedy GO with my friends or embed the clips in my blog or social networks?

You can share clips to Facebook or Twitter or by copying the external share links located by the player. The player does not support embedded clips at this time but it is a feature we are working hard to deliver. If you are a journalist or blogger covering the programming, please visit bellmediapr.ca and contact the Communications Department.

 

Why can't I view some of my favourite shows online?

Due to broadcast agreements, we do not own the rights to all shows we broadcast on television to stream on the Internet. Also, the length of time we can make the episodes available for streaming can vary, so your favourite show might only be available for a limited amount of time.

 

Are videos available in closed captioning?

Closed captioning and described video are currently available on some of our programs.

 

Why am I getting a “video playback error” on my device?

This message will be displayed when you try to watch Comedy GO video content on iOS or Android devices that do not have an official release of the OS (operating system) software. Comedy GO only supports official releases. “Jailbroken” devices are not supported.

 

Will I have the option to select video quality so I can ensure I don’t go over my monthly Internet bandwidth allocation?

Comedy GO was designed for the best TV watching experience possible. It automatically detects your connection speed and sends you the highest quality video stream your connection can support. If you have concerns about video streaming consuming your Internet bandwidth allocation, you have the option to use your set-top box.

 

The player functions are not working. What should I do?

You can try refreshing your browser, or if in an app, hard-close the app and try again.

 

When I try to watch a program, the video keeps skipping, stopping, or giving me an error message. Why is this happening?

All Comedy GO videos are tested before they are released. The most common cause of skipping in video is an issue with your Internet connection. However, if you have watched multiple videos and only experienced problems with one, please contact Comedy GO.

 

What are the system requirements to access Comedy GO from my computer?

For the best viewing experience you should have a high speed Internet connection. The speed of your connection will determine the quality of the video, and how quickly your episode will begin playing on your computer. If you are a Windows user, Comedy GO requires you to have a least Windows XP with Service Pack 2. If you are a Mac user, you must have Mac OS 10.6 or better. Comdy GO requires the Adobe® Flash® Player to stream video content. If you do not have the proper version of the Adobe® Flash® Player installed on your computer you will be required to update it before being able to sign in or watch any video.

 

While trying to watch video on the website, I received an "Adobe Flash Player is out-of-date" message.

Follow the instructions to update to the latest version of Adobe Flash Player. https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

 

While trying to watch video on the website, I received a "Right Click to play Adobe Flash Player" or "Enable Adobe Flash Player" message.

Right click on the message within the video player and follow the steps to play video instantly. If that doesn't work or isn't available, follow the steps to enable Adobe Flash Player in your browser: https://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player.html

 

Why is Flash being disabled in my browser by default?

Browsers such as Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari disable flash by default. In the coming months, we will have a new solution that will not require Flash and will meet all new industry standards. The transition will be seamless to our customers and video will continue to work.

 

I'm trying to view a video but it says that the content is no longer available?

Due to licensing agreements with our content providers, some content is only available on certain platforms or for a certain period of time before expiration.

 

What's the deal with ad blocking software?

You may have unpredictable playback when using ad-blocking software or browser plugins. We recommend turning off any unnecessary software or plugins that may affect your experience.

 

Do I need to disable my anti-virus software or any firewalls in order to access Comedy GO on my computer?

Comedy GO operates using commonly accessible web protocols (HTTP, HTTPS) on standard ports for which most firewalls will allow access. If you have custom security in place, it may affect the ability of Comedy GO to properly function. If you have installed a firewall at home, simply accept the request from your firewall asking if it’s okay to access Comedy GO. To make Comedy GO an exception to your computer’s firewall, go to your Internet service provider’s online Help section and follow the instructions. For firewalls at work, you will need to contact your company’s Information Technology department.

 

Do I need to adjust any web browser security settings on my computer to watch Comedy GO?

When you log in to Comedy GO, you are doing so with your TV Service Provider username and password, which we will never see. As a result, to watch Comedy GO, your browser must enable "third-party cookies" and must have the ability to use secure connections. Other than that, standard browser settings will work fine.
