Cablevision Systems Corp. has added international theatricals to its on-demand viewing options.
International Movies on Demand gives iO TV customers access to European, Bollywood and Spanish-language films for $4.95 each, with English-language subtitles.
New releases, festival winners, and classic hit films will be refreshed monthly and are accessible to the operator's customers with an interactive digital set-top box through channel 500 or the enhanced TV menu on the iO TV user interface.
"Cablevision is pleased to now offer International Movies On Demand as part of our VOD offering, a valuable addition to the multitude of services available to our international customers," said Cablevision senior vice president of video product management Gary Schanman in a statement. "The addition of hit foreign films from Europe, Spain and Latin America, and South Asia demonstrates Cablevision's continued commitment to provide our customers with unique content that meets their programming needs."
In addition to International Movies on Demand, Cablevision offers a dozen international in-language packages, under the umbrella of iO International.
