Customers of Cox Cable will soon be able to get the free Video On Demand feature from Disney’s television properties like ABC, ESPN, and The Disney Channel. The only catch is that the fast forward feature will be turned off. The goal is to ensure that viewers actually see the commercial spots that will help pay for the shows.
The Wall Street Journal Primetime Blog has more details. I’m kinda on the line myself. Since I use a DVR I typically don’t use the Video on Demand feature unless it’s offering original content or perhaps short segments that I wouldn’t have recorded otherwise. So I don’t see myself using it that often, but it would be nice to have if they offered something I didn’t record or couldn’t see otherwise (perhaps audio commentaries). Is this a product you would consider using?
