Comcast scares up horror broadband site

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 8:30 am

The horror genre is hot, as indicated by current box office champ “Saw III,” and Comcast Corp. plans to capitalize on that popularity with Tuesday’s appropriately timed launch of its broadband and video-on-demand channel FEARnet.com.

Operating as a multiplatform network, FEARnet will offer movie and video content acquired from Sony and Lionsgate through VOD, Internet and mobile platforms. As its moniker suggests, FEARnet will be all spine-tingling suspense and gore, all the time, in an effort to reach the youthful horror-fan audience that has flocked to such movie franchises as Lionsgate’s “Saw” trilogy and Sony Pictures’ “Grudge” pair.
