HDTV On Demand in Minneapolis/St. Paul

Sometime over the past week, Comcast added On Demand HD movies in Minneapolis/St. Paul.  We currently have four available movies, all $5.99:  Wallace and Gromit, A League of Their Own, Cliffhanger, and Just Like Heaven.  Obviously there are no new releases in this list, but at least I know they are capable of sending out HD movies via On Demand.

No charge would be better.  So they've been rotating the HD OnDemand movies in Seattle?  Any new releases?

Rotating?  They change every so often.  We had "Close Encounters" free for a while.  I only care if they're free.  Here are the current non-free ones, for what it's worth: roll

$3.99
Flesh For/Beast
Just Like Heaven
Prize/Defiance
Wallace & Gromit


$5.99
Dreamer
Red Eye

Re: HDTV On Demand in Minneapolis/St. Paul

HD movies for OnDemand are in a nationwide rollout phase.  Some areas have a much wider selection than others right now, and the goal is that by the end of the year, every market will have a decent selection.  There should be a mix of freeview and transactional-buy movies (since movies are the topic here), as well as other programming that should include sports, music stuff, and some network programming in markets they own and operate.
