Local Time Warner has started offering Network and Prime Time On Demand.

Any info on possible additions to DOD?

All I know is DIRECTV wants to. I don't know if things are held up in negotiation or execution. DIRECTV works hard to get the VOD providers to deliver good quality (note, this is not an editorial comment about the content itself... :) ) and that has delayed some VOD in the past.

I'd sure love to see this too. Especially when someone says "Tom, you gotta watch this new series". :)

Cheers,
Tom

Thanks, Tom,

Currently this is the ONLY area that local cable beats D* - - and still nowhere near in PQ.

Handy in trying new series or catching an episode that got shifted or pre-empted.

I'm sure that's true elsewhere, but its not in my area...I just switched from cable (RCN) to D* and the amount of VOD that D* has is huge compared to the piddling offerings RCN had. But if you know anything about RCN in the Lehigh Valley that's not saying much...
