Comcast Offers Academy Award Winners On Demand

With the red carpet glamour and celebrity glitz that surrounds the event, it can sometimes be hard to remember that the movies themselves will be the real stars of the 82nd Academy Awards on March 7. With Comcast on Demand you can brush up on some of this year’s Academy Contenders.

Ray Child from Comcast tells how convenient it is to review Academy Award winning films.

While members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences maintain control of the official votes, Comcast subscribers can gear up for this year’s Oscars by playing movie critic at home with Comcast On Demand. Comcast has several of the Oscar-nominated films available On Demand now, including Up (Best Picture), Star Trek (up for several awards including Makeup and Visual Effects), Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (Cinematography), Julie & Julia (Actress in a Leading Role), Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (Sound Mixing), District 9 (Best Picture) and many more are also available On Demand.

Comcast customers can check these films out and more to decide for themselves who deserves the win before the big ceremony. Just go to On Demand > Movies > Oscar Films & More > Oscar Nominees.

But it doesn’t stop there. Comcast subscribers can also check out Best Picture Oscar winners from years past, currently available on Comcast On Demand. Oscar classics like Forrest Gump, Dances With Wolves, Driving Miss Daisy, Rain Man and others.

With Comcast On Demand, subscribers have the ability to fast forward, rewind and pause selections to relive and replay their favorite scenes over and over.
