Hit CBS Shows Now on Demand from Comcast

[via press release from CBS]


CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, NCIS, Survivor and The Amazing Race Now Available

PHILADELPHIA, PA � January 12, 2006 � Four of CBS�s top-rated prime-time series, including television�s highest-rated program, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation; NCIS; Survivor; and The Amazing Race are now available on Comcast�s ON DEMAND video-on-demand (VOD) service.

Comcast Digital Cable customers in markets served by CBS owned-and-operated television stations (including New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Boston, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Detroit, Pittsburgh, Minneapolis, Dallas, Salt Lake, Denver, Miami, Chicago and Sacramento) now can watch on-demand episodes of each show as early as midnight following their broadcast on CBS. Episodes cost 99 cents each, and are available in the �Network Primetime� section of the ON DEMAND main menu. Viewers can watch programs as many times as they want for up to 24 hours after they select them.

The four programs are some of the most popular shows on television:

� CSI: Crime Scene Investigation � the number one scripted series on television, with a weekly audience of 26 million viewers, is a fast-paced drama about a team of forensic investigators trained to solve crimes by examining the evidence.

� NCIS (Naval Criminal Investigative Service) � Tuesday�s most watched program is more than just an action drama. With liberal doses of humor, it focuses on the sometimes complex and always amusing dynamics of a team forced to work together in high-stress situations. From murder and espionage to terrorism and stolen submarines, these special agents travel the globe to investigate all crimes with Navy or Marine Corps ties.

� Survivor � television�s number one reality program has 16 Americans competing in a contest of physical and mental endurance that will reward the Ultimate Survivor $1 million.

� The Amazing Race � the three-time Emmy Award-winner for Best Reality Series pits 11 teams of two in a race around the world as they compete in a series of challenges, some mental and some physical, and only when the tasks have been completed will they learn of their next location. The first team to arrive at the final destination wins $1 million.

Episodes of CSI and NCIS will be available on Comcast ON DEMAND until the day the next weekly episode airs. When the new seasons of Survivor and The Amazing Race debut in February, each episode will be available for customers to view for the remainder of the season. Prior to that, customers can enjoy the complete seasons of Survivor: Guatemala and The Amazing Race 7.

�Adding CBS�s top rated shows to ON DEMAND is another way that Comcast is giving consumers the flexibility to watch television�s best programming whenever they want to watch it,� said Page Thompson, Vice President and General Manager of Comcast ON DEMAND. �Millions of people are already viewing programs on demand, and with prime-time network hits, VOD will continue to be the destination for customers who want the most choice and control in their home entertainment experience.�

The new CBS series are part of Comcast ON DEMAND�s growing library of more than 3,800 programs, including more than 800 movies each month, music videos and programs, kids� shows, sports highlights, news and informational programs. With ON DEMAND, customers can play, fast-forward, rewind, pause and restart their selections as many times as they want for up to 24 hours after being selected.
