Comcast offers PPV programming (pay-per-view) as well as free movies and shows through their video-on-demand service (VOD). Comcast customers must have a digital cable box issued by the company to access both the free VOD programming and premium pay-per-view choices. Comcast offers several high-definition show episodes, movies and sports events for customers who have an HD-capable cable box. Customers who do not have a digital cable box will not be able to access Comcast VOD services.
Things You'll Need
- Comcast digital cable box
