On Command checks in with NBCU deal
On Command Video Corp., which provides entertainment services to about 800,000 hotel guest rooms, has scored a deal to offer events and films from NBC Universal.
In addition to movies, the deal also allows On Command to serve up some NBC Universal prime time shows on-demand "just hours" after their original airing. Some featured shows and series include Law & Order: SVU, The Office, Monk, and Battlestar Galactica.
NBC Universal has also approved On Command's new in-room HD copy protection technology. That will enable the studio to securely offer some of its content in high-def format.
