Comcast On Demand – Rivalry Week and the Oscars

On a lighter note today, there is some great TV on tap for this weekend between March Madness college basketball and the Oscars. If you’re into NCAA action, the final Duke/UNC game of the season is scheduled for Saturday night. But that doesn’t mean you have to wait until then for your ACC rivalry fix. Comcast has several selections in its ESPN On Demand folder with highlights from Duke/UNC games of the past. You can catch classic action, like clips from a 2004 game when Duke was ranked #1, or grab a refresh of this season’s earlier match-up between the two rivals.

Meanwhile, if movies are more your thing, Comcast is highlighting the Oscar-nominated films it has available on VOD. There’s still time to watch before the awards show on Sunday night. Films on the menu include The Hurt Locker, Julia & Julia, Inglorious Bastards, A Serious Man, District 9, and Up.

Over the last couple of years, VOD has become a valuable asset as MSOs have exponentially increased the available content. And a lot of the video is content you couldn’t have pre-recorded on a DVR. Any question on why it’s nice to have both? Or why it’s good to have digital cable?
