New ways to watch TV, movies
For those who don't want to cancel their cable service, cable TV providers such as Comcast offer subscribers on-demand options. Prices vary by provider, so check with your cable operator.
Of course, you need cable service. The average cost of Comcast's basic package is about $70 for TV service, about 100 digital channels, video on demand, and XfinityTV.com. Comcast gets movies often on the day they are available on DVD. That makes it an option if you can pony up a bigger monthly subscription fee and value seeing just released films.
