Film studio 20th Century Fox said Monday that it has expanded its deal with In Demand, a top provider of cable pay-per-view entertainment, to include licensing for video-on-demand services. Under the deal, In Demand will have video-on-demand rights to Fox's current movie releases and select titles from its film library. Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
The deal comes on the heels of Fox's departure from Movies.com, a video-on-demand venture with Walt Disney. Los Angeles-based Fox, a unit of News Corp., said it pulled out of the yet-to-be-launched site because of potential regulatory issues with distribution over the Internet.
