Succession Season 2

I’ve been watching Succession Season 2 but it’s disappeared from the program guide. Can anyone explain why?

The commercial reality is that there are broadly two bases on which Sky, and hence NowTV, obtain programmes, like Succession, from outside suppliers: initially on first-run, where they show the programmes live, and on catchup up until 30 days after the last episode of the season.

 

This is the basis on which Sky and NowTV obtained Season 2 of Succession, and the 30 days has duly elapsed. The provider of this Season will now lease it out to secondary and tertiary distributors, at a lower rate.

 

Once it’s done the rounds of these, it becomes available on the second basis, box set, for whatever length of time Sky agrees with the supplier.

 

This is the basis on which Season 1 has been (re)obtained, so it is not tied to the same dates as Season 2. Though in practice, Sky like to obtain these past Seasons around the time of the latest first-run Season.

 

So expect Seasons 1 and 2 to come back when the first-run Season 3 is in the offing.

 

As to expiring without warning, every episode carries its expiry date in its programme details; but I have a theory about what might have happened here.

 

if you binge-watch it episode to episode, without ever going back to the episodes list where the expiry date is shown, either going back to back or via Continue Watching, the expiry dates may not appear to you, so you get no warning of them.

 

Is this what happened to you all here; or is there somewhere you expected to be able to see the expiry details and they weren’t there?

 

Or is the problem that December 6 was erroneously shown, when Season 2 was always slated to leave NowTV on the 12th of November?

Thanks for your excellent detailed post.

 

I was about to end my current 2 month £10 gift card subscription because Succession S2 is still not available. Auto renewal was about to activate at £8.99/m so to keep me subscribed I was offerd and accepted a special bargain offer of a 3 month Entertainment Pass for only £1.60/m.

 

I am hoping, therefore, that Suc'  S2 will reappear in the next 3 months....definately worth the £4.80 to stick with Now TV. Before exiting the order page I completed the Feedback questions box and 'begged' Sky to repeat Suc' S2.

 

In the meantime I'll try  'The Outsider'  and  'From the Eath to the Moon.'

 

Just finished all episodes of the Sky Witness (NowTV's)  'The Good Doctor'....5 Stars, brilliant!.

Yep totally agree, its very frustrating that season 2 has suddenly disappeared.

I started watching Succession a few weeks back and when I did I checked both seasons to see when they were available until and BOTH seasons showed the end date of 6th December.

Therefore I figured I had plenty of time to watch both seasons.

Little did I know that Sky / NowTV, in their infinite wisdom would decide to completely screw me over and remove Season 2 over 3 weeks before the 6th December!

Utterly atrocious customer service.
