For Immediate Release
IT'S TIME TO FIRE UP THE YULE LOG FOR THE 2012 HOLIDAYS!
YULE LOG IS BACK ON CABLE TELEVISION VIDEO ON DEMAND
IN SD, HD and 3D AND ONLINE, ALL FOR FREE
Festive Offering Also Includes Winter Green and Snowman to Enhance the Holidays
New York, December 12 - The televised Yule Log on digital cable is back this year in SD, HD and once again in 3D via free Video On Demand (VOD). Plus, for added holiday cheer, viewers can access the iconic video fireplace on-the-go, anytime, for free, via the national Movies On Demand website, rentmoviesondemand.com.
This smoke-free and stoke-free fireplace will warm up any holiday party when a big-screen TV is transformed into a crackling hearth. It is available via VOD with just a click of a button for digital cable subscribers on Xfinity, Cox Communications, Cablevision, Time Warner Cable, Bright House Networks, Cablevision, Midcontinent and RCN. The holiday gift to subscribers is available now and airs until Jan. 2, 2012 (available on Cablevision until Jan. 6). (See list below of exact locations on system lineups and content availability in 3D, SD or HD.)
For the digital version, viewers can play the Yule Log on any computer or mobile device simply by clicking on: http://rentmoviesondemand.com/yulelog. While the virtual hearth is burning, they can also browse through the hottest movies available instantly via cable's Movies On Demand (MOD).
Adding to the familiar Yule Log on cable, program distributor iN DEMAND also provides Winter Green*, a snowy, pine forest setting and Snowman*, dressed in top hat, scarf and neckerchief withstanding a windy, snowy storm. All three offerings will help viewers get into the holiday spirit, accompanied by traditional carols like Joy to the World, Hark the Herald Angels Sing and We Wish You a Merry Christmas.
While the original televised Yule Log has been airing on broadcast TV since 1966, distributor iN DEMAND first produced the high definition version starting in 2002 and then lit it up on Video On Demand starting in 2007. The 3D version, which started in 2010, is originally produced exclusively for cable by iN DEMAND using the latest 3D technology. To see the 3D version, viewers need a 3D TV with compatible 3D glasses and an HD set-top box connected according to their system's specs. The HD offerings were filmed with HD cameras and are presented in 1080i picture and 5.1 sound. The 3D version was produced by Offhollywood Digital using Red 1 cameras and an Element Technica 3D rig.
*Winter Green and Snowman not in 3D.
