Other MSOs To Launch RHI Movies on VOD Later This Year

NEW YORK -- RHI Entertainment, a leading television production and distribution company, announced today a landmark initiative to premiere original, never-before-seen movies in the action, thriller and horror genres to cable TV customers on their video on demand (VOD) service. Early distribution agreements include Time Warner Cable, Bright House Networks, Cablevision, and Cox. RHI expects other agreements later this year.

A total of 24 original world premiere movies are being offered in the first year, with two new movies premiering each month. Cable TV customers will be able to choose from six RHI movies available for a fee at any given time. Further, RHI is the first company to produce and offer movies in both High and Standard Definition for premiere on VOD.

Black Friday (Judd Nelson), Maneater (Gary Busey), The Sitter (Gail O'Grady), Deadly Suspicion (Marilu Henner), Something Beneath (Kevin Sorbo), and Eye of the Beast (James Van Der Beek) are just a few of the initial titles and cast.

Additionally, as part of the overall package, RHI is offering many of its award winning classics on a "Free on Demand" service. The FOD offering, entitled RHI Showcase, features such well known, and beloved titles as, Alice in Wonderland, The Prince and the Pauper and Captains Courageous.

"RHI Entertainment has been producing first-rate movies, miniseries and series for television for many years," said Robert Halmi, Jr., President and CEO of RHI Entertainment. "We're looking forward to expanding our products on these new platforms and growing relationships with our distribution partners."

Following the exclusive world premiere VOD exhibition, cable networks such as SCI FI, Spike TV and Lifetime will telecast the original movies in their premiere broadcast/cable window. Genius Entertainment will release the movies on home video.
