Shaw Communications said it has become the first Canadian cable operator to ink a video-on-demand (VOD) agreement with Paramount Pictures. Financial terms were not disclosed.

The deal gives the operator access to Paramount's VOD fare, including titles such as Coach Carter, The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie, Team America World Police, and Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events.

Shaw, which offers about 1,700 on-demand titles, has deployed VOD in markets such as Calgary, Edmonton, Vancouver, and Winnipeg.
