Problem with REELZ on live tv

Looking for Live Cops program Friday and Saturday night on REELZ.  Seems that it's not live, taped programming on instead! Why is "Live TV" not live?

Re: Problem with REELZ on live tv


When streaming Reelz, the "LiveTV" is actually meant to mean the continuous streaming of the Reelz library of shows.

To actually get live "LiveTV" need to use either cable, satellite, or a cable-alternative streaming service that gives you access to Reelz live programming. (ie. Philo, SlingTV, DirectTVStream, etc).
