NBC, Cablevision in Video-on-Demand Deal

Wednesday, 27 September 2006 12:00 AM

LOS ANGELES -- Cablevision has entered the broadcast video-on-demand (VOD) business, striking a deal with NBC to make primetime series like "The Office" available for purchase the day after each episode airs.

The cable operator will charge 95 cents per episode, making it the second cable operator since Comcast Corp. to get regular primetime broadcast fare on VOD. NBC and CBS already have deals with Comcast, and NBC also has a deal with satellite service DirecTV.

Cablevision has experimented with VOD fees before, offering Fox's "24" and FX's "The Shield" in several different business models during 2003-04.

Other NBC series available via Cablevision VOD include "Law & Order: SVU," "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" and, beginning next month, "Friday Night Lights" and "Las Vegas."
