– 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.
