Lost Remote: VOD helps fuel Comcast profit surge
Lost Remote: VOD helps fuel Comcast profit surge Comcast’s first quarter profit surged nearly fivefold thank to “robust” growth in high-speed internet and digital cable services like VOD, DVRs and HDTV. “Our customers are embracing a whole new way to watch television,” said Comcast Chairman and CEO Brian Roberts. “In March, our digital television customers viewed more than 100 million ON DEMAND programs. That is three times the number of programs viewed ON DEMAND in March of last year and a 40% increase in usage from the fourth quarter of 2004.” Thanks, Cory!
