Video On Demand Guide

Rentals provides access to VOD (Video on Demand) movies and programs. You can choose from the most recent movies and older favorites, along with favorite TV shows, music videos, and local programming.

Unlike pay per view which only allows you to watch the program once at the scheduled time,

VOD allows you to determine what and when you want to watch, and how often during the rental period. You can even pause, rewind or fast forward just like a videotape or DVD. Rental prices are comparable to prices at your local video store, and some programs may even be free!

VOD Rentals are the ultimate in convenience and entertainment in your home! No more hassles with video rental stores.
