Time Warner Launches News on-Demand


Subscribers in Time Warner Cable’s San Antonio system will be able to access news-on-demand clips from local TV station WOAI as part of their video-on-demand service.

The on-demand content -- WOIA newscasts and programs such as San Antonio Living and Sports Sunday -- will be available about five minutes after they air live, Time Warner said.

Programs are encoded in real-time and sent from the system’s Broadbus Technologies Inc. server.

The MSO said digital customers are viewing an average of 15 VOD streams apiece per month.
