Release Date: 05/05/2009

Palm Desert, CA, May 5, 2009 –– Call it a recession-special, a steal or simply a great deal. Today, Time Warner Cable announced it is reducing Movies on Demand prices by a $1.00, from $4.99 to $3.99, during a summer promotion that began May 1, 2009. 

All movies on demand, including those in high-definition, will be available at the low price of $3.99 each. With Movies On Demand, Time Warner Cable digital cable customers get instant access to the best new movies — including the many available in brilliant HD.

Time Warner Cable’s new Movies on Demand pack a competitive punch:
• Time Warner Cable’s HD Movies on Demand are $2.00 less than DIRECTV and DISH Network, which both charge $5.99 for HD Movies on Demand.
o Also, customers do not need an internet connection or phone line (like they do with DIRECTV and DISH Network, respectively) to order movies on demand from Time Warner Cable – they just need a digital converter box!
• No fancy, expensive equipment (e.g, Blu-ray Players) needed to watch movies in HD at home.
• Time Warner Cable gives instant access to popular movies, including many available on the same-day as the DVD release. Customers simply click “buy” when they want and the movie is delivered instantly to their TV, with:
o No need to get off the couch and drive to pick up movies!
o No waiting time for movies to arrive in the mail!
