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?
