Cablevision Rolls Out HD VOD


Cablevison Systems Corp. has unveiled its HD on VOD service, with about 12 Hollywood movie titles.

HD movies are priced at $6.95, compared to $4.95 for traditional VOD movies.

The extra fees cover CVS's encoding costs, among other items.

SeaChange is Cablevision's server vendor, while the MSO offers HD service through its Sony set-tops and Scientific-Atlanta's Explorer 4200.

Movie titles include such new fare as About Schmidt, along with several IMAX titles.

A spokesman said the company plans an official announcement next week.
