"NBC Universal's programs are a great addition to our ON DEMAND service, and this agreement will make many of their most popular broadcast and cable programs available to our customers around the clock."

"We're committed to helping viewers enjoy our programs in the ways that are most convenient for them," said David Zaslav, President, NBC Universal Cable.
