    Episode 4 missing from On Demand could be a decision made by HBO. For On Demand, content availability is generally left to the discretion of the many broadcasters we deal with. This episode should be available on HBO GO though. Are you able to sign in to the HBO GO app to view this content? -Kevin M. Cox Support Forum Moderator

      I have never downloaded the HBO GO app to my Amazon Fire Kindle. I may try to do that today... or perhaps I'll just read an online summary recap of Episode 4 before proceeding to Episode 5.

      I do appreciate your suggestion, Kevin. Thanks for trying to help!

        Not sure if you watched episode 4 or not, I’m in the same boat trying to watch this series right now and just ran into no episode 4. I am a cox gold package paying customer with hbo and all the premier movie channels included and I have no episode 4 as of typing this reply.  I’m going to say this is a cox issue or cox initiated removal of episode 4, I have access to xfinity (Comcast) cable and they show all 6 episodes on demand. I’ve noticed cox does this with other shows as well... kinda really super frustrating considering I’m paying $200+ a month for services.

    When you finish watching the series, missing Episode-4 won't make a difference.  Personally, I think it was overly produced to drag out longer than it needed to be.  There's a lot of fluff and needless interviews.

    I remember this story in 2000-2001 but it obviously "disappeared" from the news after 9/11, so I was curious how it unfolded.  The producers could have completed it in 3 episodes.
