The companies will make select NBC primetime, late-night and daytime programs available in Comcast VOD markets served by NBC owned-and-operated stations, as well as hit cable programs from USA Network, Sci Fi Channel and Bravo, available on demand in all Comcast VOD markets.
NBC Universal on demand programs on Comcast will include:
- Law & Order: Special Victims Unit
- Law & Order: Criminal Intent
- The Office
- Las Vegas
- The Tonight Show with Jay Leno
- Late Night with Conan O’Brien
- Monk (USA)
- Battlestar Galactica (Sci Fi)
- Ghost Hunters (Sci Fi)
- Celebrity Poker Showdown (Bravo)
“Our growing on-demand lineup of broadcast TV, movies, original content and great cable network shows gives customers access to the ultimate time-shifted viewing experience,” said Steve Burke, COO of Comcast. He added: “With more than [2 billion] VOD views since 2004, Comcast customers are showing their strong desire to watch what they want when they want on TV. NBC Universal’s programs are a great addition to our ON DEMAND service, and this agreement will make many of their most popular broadcast and cable programs available to our customers around the clock.”
NBC Network primetime programs will be available to Comcast Digital Cable customers as early as midnight following their broadcast for 99 cents each. Late-night and daytime shows will be available at no additional charge. NBC Universal Cable shows will be added to the ON DEMAND line-up in all Comcast VOD markets across the country later this year and will be available for the company’s Digital Cable customers to view at no additional charge.
