Comcast & the Academy Awards

Red carpet season is in full swing. With the Golden Globe Awards behind us, movie lovers around the world now look forward to the most anticipated movie award ceremony of the year – the Oscars.

Ray Child, from Comcast, explains how Comcast can help you get into the spirit of the Oscars.

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 85th Academy Awards on February 24.

Through the months of January and February, Comcast subscribers can play movie critic at home with the Xfinity On Demand collection “Oscar Films & More.” Comcast has several of the Oscar-nominated films available On Demand now, including Beasts of the Southern Wild (nominated for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress and Best Adapted Screenplay), Moonrise Kingdom (nominated for Best Original Screenplay), Brave (nominated for Best Animated Feature), Frankenweenie (nominated for Best Animated Feature), ParaNorman (nominated for Best Animated Feature), Snow White and Huntsman (nominated for Best Costume Design and Best Visual Effects) and more.

But that’s not all. Comcast subscribers can also check out Oscar winners from years past, also currently available on Xfinity On Demand. Academy Award winning classics like Forrest Gump (Best Picture), Up (Best Animated Feature), Chicago (Best Picture), Out of Africa (Best Picture), The Queen (Best Performance by an Actress), March of the Penguins (Best Documentary), Rain Man (Best Picture) and others are available at: On Demand > Oscar Films & More.

And, with, Comcast customers don’t have to be at home to play movie critic. Catch past Oscar winning films anywhere you have a WiFi connection by logging onto the website and choosing Movies > Collections > Oscar Winners. Check out movies like Back to the Future, Evita, Philadelphia and more, all available online.

This month’s Oscar offerings are just one reason why Comcast customers choose On Demand programming more than 350 million times every month.
