Indie Flicks Now Come To Cable Boxes As Soon As They Hit Theaters

It used to be Steven Soderbergh who could get away with bringing indie films to cable on-demand services on their theatrical opening day

Now IFC Entertainment has reached a deal with Comcast and Cablevision that pipes all its films, in HD, to cable boxes, giving moviegoers an option to ditch their local art houses.

Hollywood blogger Nikki Finke reports Cablevision charges $6.95 for either standard definition or high-definition, while Comcast charges $6.99 for SD and $7.99 for HD. Here’s a look at the current slate, which includes older films as well as new ones.
