Availability of the channels does come with some restrictions. According to Sony, channel availability depends on a customer's location and zip code. In some zip codes, live broadcast feeds for ABC, CBS, Fox, and/or NBC are not available and ABC, Fox, and NBC offer an alternative On Demand version instead. CBS does not offer an alternative On Demand version of its channel in zip codes where live programming is not available. 

On Demand versions of ABC, Fox, and NBC do not air live sports games. Consumers can check which channels are available live or On Demand by entering their zip code at
