Video on Demand Is Finally Taking Hold
by the way of Time Warner Cable. We've read this news before, but this time they're promising to start providing the service at buyable prices "by the end of the year throughout 1.2 million subscribers in New York City" (the slogan "Now Anything's Possible
" is already on their site
). Choose, play, pause and rewind any program you want, from film to tv series, it's all there for you. It "may be the most significant development for the Couch Potato Nation
since the remote control". And the cable tv providers take the lead over the satellite television providers (DirecTV
), who just can't offer video on-demand like that.
