New on VOD: ‘Kung Fu Panda 2,’ ‘Apollo 18′

“Kung Fu Panda 2” and “Apollo 18” are now available through Suddenlink Video on Demand (VOD).

In the animated adventure film “Kung Fu Panda 2,” Po is now living his dream as The Dragon Warrior. But his new life is threatened by the emergence of a villain: a peacock who plans to use a secret weapon to conquer China. Voices are provided by Jack Black, Angelina Jolie, Dustin Hoffman, Jackie Chan and Seth Rogen.

NASA’s canceled trip to the moon in the 1970s is the basis for “Apollo 18,” a sci-fi thriller that explores the urban legend surrounding the mission: that it actually occurred and proof of extraterrestrial life exists on film. Warren Christie, Lloyd Owen and Ryan Robbins star.

Where Suddenlink VOD is available, check out these and other titles by going to Channel 1. A Suddenlink digital receiver is required to access the VOD menu.

    Why is ABC and NBC on On Demand, but not CBS? Also they had a new Revenge episode on ABC on Wednesday and it isn’t on On Demand as of yet. They have posted The Middle and one other show that was on the same night. Some times it is the next day or it takes about a week then you missed what happened before.

    How do we get Halogen On Demand? They advertise it and we don’t have it on our menu.

      Thanks for your questions. ABC and NBC are available because they offer their VOD content for no additional charge. CBS and FOX want more money. Since our customers already pay for access to those networks, we do not believe they should pay extra for network VOD content. In terms of timing, we make episodes available as soon as we receive them from the networks, which is usually within a week after the first airing. I’m not sure what’s causing the inconsistency with Revenge, but we’ll check into it. Finally, we do not have a contract with Halogen for its on-demand content.

      I received some additional information about the delayed episodes. Last weekend, there was a technical glitch in our VOD system, causing some new episodes to get “stuck.” Our engineers worked with the relevant equipment vendor Monday to resolve that issue, which should have been fixed the same day. I apologize for my delay in providing this update.
