Comcast adds On Demand for Vail area

Daily staff report
Vail, CO Colorado

VAIL, Colorado – Comcast announced Friday the launch of its On Demand service for Vail, Avon, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, Dillon, Frisco, Keystone and Silverthorne

The service offers more than 20,000 choices of programming. The company is able to roll out the new services thanks to an agreement with the Colorado Department of Transportation to lease fiber-optic cable along the Interstate 70 Corridor.

On Demand offers the ability to choose from movies, music, sports, news, instructional and entertainment programming. In addition, viewers can rewind, fast forward and pause programs, and can store most selections for up to 24-48 hours.

The majority of On Demand programming – including shows from networks like TNT, USA Network, ESPN, Comedy Central, The Ski Channel, CNN, Golf Channel, Cartoon Network, TV One and Discovery – is available at no additional charge over the cost of Comcast Digital Cable service.

Comcast will move its mountain subscribers to an all-digital simulcast lineup, which allows the company to transmit channels via a digital signal instead of a traditional analog signal. This move, which will give subscribers better picture and sound quality, began in March and will be completed in April.
