    What kind of access?
    Because on my end, i'm unable to download it, it gives me an error something like ''needs TV provider username/password'' but i don't have any TV provider (as i'm not from the US). So is there any solution to this?

    Episodes are available from without logging in to an account with a paid TV provider in the USA for only one week after the program airs. After one week, someone must log in to their account with a paid TV provider in the USA to access the episode. However, assuming that the download succeeds, the downloaded file is probably unplayable because any stream accessed via a service provider's account login is very likely to be encrypted. (At least that has been my experience.)
