Comcast, MGM to launch action movie VOD channel

Comcast Corp. and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Inc. said Tuesday they are teaming up to introduce a video-on-demand channel featuring action movies and TV shows.

Comcast, the country's largest cable operator, already has a hit with another genre-specific VOD channel and Web site, FEARnet, which features horror movies and thrillers, in collaboration with Lionsgate and Sony Pictures Television. FEARnet is also available on mobile phones.

Philadelphia-based Comcast said the "Impact" channel will have 25 to 30 titles every month — and about 200 a year. But it will tap into MGM's library of over 1,000 action movies and TV shows, including many in high-definition format.
