Comcast On Demand Adds CBS Fare


CBS series CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, NCIS, Survivor and The Amazing Race are now available on Comcast Corp.'s Comcast On Demand video-on-demand service, the MSO said Thursday.

Comcast Digital Cable subscribers in markets served by CBS owned-and-operated stations -- including New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Boston, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Detroit, Pittsburgh, Minneapolis, Dallas, Salt Lake City, Denver, Miami, Chicago and Sacramento, Calif. -- now have access to on-demand episodes of each show as early as midnight following their broadcasts on CBS for 99 cents apiece.

“Millions of people are already viewing programs on-demand and, with primetime network hits, VOD will continue to be the destination for customers who want the most choice and control in their home-entertainment experience,” Comcast On Demand vice president and general manager Page Thompson said in a prepared statement.
