Comcast Adds Troop Greetings to On Demand


Comcast Corp. systems in Philadelphia, southern New Jersey, northern Delaware and Harrisburg, Pa., are carrying short video greetings from troops stationed overseas on their video-on-demand lineup so friends and family can watch their loved ones at their convenience.

The MSO said about 450 video greetings are on various VOD servers in the Greater Philadelphia area.

Consumers can go to the "Get Local" menu button and call up troop greetings, which are cataloged by state. Viewers can fast-forward through the greetings to find the one they are looking for.

The videos were provided by Home Town News, which provides greetings from troops stationed around the world.
