Insight Taps TVN for VOD

Insight Communications Co. Inc. is talking with content provider TVN
Entertainment Corp. about providing additional content for its video-on-demand

The MSO is also getting ready to launch a subscription-VOD product by the end
of the second quarter.

In a conference call with analysts to discuss fourth-quarter results,
executive vice president and chief operating officer Kim Kelly said Insight is
in talks and 'working out the contracts' with TVN.

The deal -- in conjunction with current provider In Demand L.L.C. -- should
boost the number of available VOD titles.

Insight also plans to launch SVOD, and it is waiting for provider Diva
Systems Corp. to implement new Cable Television Laboratories Inc. VOD-encoding
standards, expected around April 1, Kelly added.
