Criminal Minds has a habit of doing this!

 

It was also on Netflix not so long ago (It may even be there currently). Me and my partner started form Series 1, started to get into it and then it was removed from Netflix. We haven't watched it since, boo!

 

It's a shame this has happened on Sky too. Clearly the rights holders aren't interested in long term deals, thus messing with customers who then lose out.


When Criminal Minds was less than a month until it expired, did you not see the expiry date shown? If you are unclear what I mean, please see the following thread.

You may have misread my post.

 

I wasn't asking for help, not commenting on how Sky signposted a series being deleted (I know how it works, thanks).

I was making the point that the rights holders of Criminal Minds have signed short term deals with multiple platform holders and tegardlreg of signposting, it sucks that people are time limited in viewing them because of this.

Most box sets do have an expiration date.

 

 


  @JonW42 Need to correct you here. All Box Sets have an expiration date. Some of them have a delete date which, if applicable, appears after it has been downloaded. Expiry Dates & Deletion Dates are two different things.

You should not be furious with Sky for Criminal Minds expiring before you finished watching. There is an expiration date and when and where you see this depends on if you have Q or +HD. Take a look at the following thread to see how to see the expiration date.

  @JonW42 Regarding the link you gave, there is a much better piece of information in the blog section for both Sky+ & Sky Q which includes a video, you can find it  here. Maybe use this info in the future?

Thanks for that. I wasn't sure if all box sets expired. I do know the download expiration date can be different from the box sets or catch up expiry dates.
