NBC Universal getting in the HD distribution biz

Darren Murph

Details on this one are still scarce, but it looks like NBC Universal is jumping head first into the high-definition distribution business. Just months after launching the 24/7 horror channel Chiller, the firm is now releasing its first two HD titles for pay-per-view and video-on-demand. While it wasn't specifically stated which mediums would offer up the HD PPV / HD VOD niceties, folks who are graced with NBC Universal's offerings will initially find Hollywoodland and The Return for their viewing pleasure. Although the spooky The Return won't hit the tube until March 29th, Hollywoodland is reportedly available right now, so for those of you who've plunked down the coinage required to check it out, be sure to let us know how it went over.
