- Rogers On Demand and Rogers Anyplace TV to begin carrying Tribeca Film titles-

TORONTO, Feb. 28, 2012 /CNW/ - Rogers Communications and Tribeca Enterprises today announced the addition of Tribeca Film titles to the Rogers On Demand and Rogers Anyplace TV movie lineup. The agreement provides new platforms for independent productions, while supporting filmmakers and introducing audiences to films they might not otherwise see.

Beginning today, Tribeca Film will release Edward Burns' Newlyweds, as well as Black Butterflies, Conception, and Neon Flesh. The films are available for rent on Rogers On Demand channel 100 and online at Rogers Anyplace TV (rogersanyplacetv.com), with additional films to be made available in the coming months.

"We're thrilled to be working with Tribeca to expand our on-demand library and give our customers access to quality films that don't get the same exposure as blockbusters," said Anthony Antonelli, Senior Director of On Demand Services, Rogers Communications. "This agreement furthers our commitment to bring Canadians world-class content on multiple platforms."

"We view Rogers Communications as the perfect partner for Tribeca Film," said Todd Green, VP and General Manager, Tribeca Film.  "Rogers provides innovative on demand platforms for our films and has the marketing and promotional expertise to bring our "Festival Experience On Demand" offering to people all across Canada all year long."

Rogers On Demand and Rogers Anyplace TV currently carry a growing selection of over 150 independent films available for rent. The movies are available on Rogers On Demand starting at $5.99, and online at Rogers Anyplace TV starting at $4.99.
