IC Places Hollywood to Debut January 20Back
Hollywood’s acclaimed red carpet will soon be coming to Bright House Networks Local ON Demand channels. The company today announced that it has signed an agreement with IC Places to host IC Places Hollywood, a weekly half hour show produced exclusively for Bright House Networks. The show will make its debut on Friday, January 20 on Bright House Networks’ Local On Demand channel in each of its markets.
IC Places Hollywood features film critic Steven Samblis, as he sits down with everyone’s favorite stars for in-depth interviews, gives instant movie reviews direct from movie theatre screenings, and takes viewers for an up-close look at the red carpet. Steve Samblis began his career as a stock broker, and quickly moved into the position of IPO Analyst, where he was quoted in hundreds of articles in publications such as The Wall Street Journal, Time magazine and US News and World Report. In 2008, he followed his love for movies and created the innovative Instant Movie Review, which was a runaway success online and currently has 50 million viewers a month. Steve is also the Editor in Chief of IC Places' 350 city entertainment websites.
Bright House Networks also recently launched its monthly YOU On Demand specials featuring TV personality Tony Little, which highlights viewer videos nationwide featuring funny moments, pet s, performances, and creative productions, on Local On Demand.
The company will also begin to share a selection of its most popular fitness programming, including yoga, Pilates, tai chi, and workouts with all of its Local On Demand channels beginning in January. These programs join other shows available on Local On Demand, including Honky Tonk TV, The Movie Loft, Brain Fuel TV, and Premium TV. Central Indiana Local On Demand is available locally on channel 600.
“We are extremely excited to add IC Places Hollywood to our Local On Demand programming,” said Elliott Wiser, Corporate Vice President, News and Local Programming. “Our Local On Demand offerings have proven very popular in all of our markets, and we are pleased to continue to add more viewing options for our customers.
