Service available through Comcast On Demand.
Independent audio and video company Palm Pictures has partnered with cable provider Comcast to create the video-on-demand service Palm Pictures VOD.
The service, which will be available through Comcast On Demand, will broadcast Palm Pictures feature films, documentaries, shorts, exclusive trailers and behind-the scenes footage.
The programming will be divided into four categories: Palm Festival, for new independent films; RESFEST Shorts, which will feature programming from its film festival RESFEST; Palm Independent, for films and documentaries from the Palm Pictures library; and Palm Extras, for extra content including cast and crew interviews.
Features on Palm Festival and RESFEST Shorts will also direct viewers to Web sites to vote on which content should be released theatrically or on DVD.
The multi-year agreement allows all of the Palm Pictures content to be available through Comcast On Demand's "Free Movies" category.
