Astral launches VOD classics service

13 December 2006 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

TORONTO -- Canadian premium pay TV and specialty channel operator Astral Media Inc. on Wednesday launched Mpix OnDemand, Canada's first subscription VOD service offering classic movies.

Montreal-based Astral said Mpix OnDemand, offered initially to Rogers digital cable subscribers in Ontario and Atlantic Canada, will offer movies already screening on the Mpix and Mescape classic film channels.

Astral's latest free, on-demand service aims at keeping subscribers engaged and reducing subscriber churn, much as Astral's the Movie Network OnDemand service, which features first-run Hollywood and Canadian movies, first did when launched in June 2004.

"The success of the Movie Network OnDemand clearly indicates that we have entered an on-demand world where consumers want and expect choice and convenience when it comes to their television viewing," Domenic Vivolo, senior vp of marketing and sales at Astral Television Networks, said.

Mpix OnDemand's content will feature commercial-free classic movies five years or older, starting this month with the first five films in the Rocky franchise, Saturday Night Fever, Footloose and The Princess Bride. »

Chris Penn: 1965-2006

25 January 2006 | IMDb News

Actor Chris Penn, brother of Sean Penn and star of such films as Reservoir Dogs and Mulholland Falls, was found dead Tuesday at a condominium in Santa Monica; he was 40. Few details were released surrounding Penn's death late Tuesday afternoon, though sources reported there were no signs of foul play, and an autopsy was to be conducted to determine the cause of death. A spokesperson for the Penn family confirmed the actor's passing and released a statement saying that Penn's family "would appreciate the media's respect of their privacy during this difficult time." The son of director Leo Penn and actress Eileen Ryan, Penn was the younger brother of Oscar-winning actor Sean Penn and musician Michael Penn, and began his acting career in the early 80s, appearing in such films as Rumble Fish, All the Right Moves, and Footloose; he appeared alongside his brother in the 1986 film At Close Range. Penn went on to specialize in working-class character roles, achieving fame for his portrayal of Nice Guy Eddie Cabot in Quentin Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs as well as such films as Short Cuts, The Funeral (for which he received an Independent Spirit Award nomination), and Mulholland Falls. Most recently, he appeared in the film version of Starsky & Hutch as well as episodes of TV series Entourage and Everwood, and his latest film, The Darwin Awards, was slated for a premiere Wednesday night at the Sundance Film Festival. --Prepared by IMDb Staff »
