I woke up this morning bright and early to watch Episode 3 of The Walking Dead [ Walking Dead Episode 3 Review ] and was frankly shocked when I loaded up my Xbox and the latest episode Tell it To The Frogs was not available for me to watch. I paid for the entire season up front so that I could get each episode and when the 3rd episode wasnt downloaded I thought perhaps I missed something or had a glitch.
I posted this morning about it and readers have been writing in complaining that I am very much not alone. I can tell you that as of now 5:30pm EST Walking Dead Episode 3 is still not available and Microsoft is apparently not concerned.
Users are clearly upset and are calling Microsoft as RiskGirl put it ‘flipping out’. For those wondering what Microsoft has to say Kris one of our readers says he was told the following when he called and complained;
Same problem, I called zune support too. They don’t know anything. All they could tell me is to call back Saturday if it’s not in the library by then. That’s some bullshit, it’s available on iTunes already! I don’t know what microsoft’s problem is but I’m definitely not renewing my live subscription. That appletv is looking pretty good about now.
Needless to say if I have to wait till Saturday to watch Walking Dead Episode 3 its going to definitely turn me off the ZUNE subscription service. I suppose the lesson here is dont pay for something up front since you never know what you will get .. or in this case not get. I suppose you might find some small comfort in watching the latest Walking Dead Preview Video for Episode 4 but it makes me feel barely better since who knows when we will be able to watch it!
Update: Episode 3 is now finally available on ZUNE but if you bought the season pass your in for a rude awakening. You are going to be made to pay Twice for it. Walking Dead Double Billing Customers
