For instance, if you want to watch The Chi on Showtime, you will have to check the TV guide on your PPV channel and find out what time it airs. It’s recommended to buy the show 30 minutes before airing so that you don’t miss out on anything. Once the show airs, you can start watching.

On-demand allows a viewer to watch TV content as per their schedule. You can pause, play, rewind, fast forward and even re-watch a show. Also, Usually, TV providers offer a list of shows available for on-demand viewing with their dates. You have a 12-hour window to watch these shows. So, The time frame differs from one provider to another.
