ATLANTA -- Cox Digital Cable customers in select markets now have access to more than 700 hours of On DEMAND content with the addition of free programming from some of the country's most popular cable networks. This new content is offered to Cox Digital Cable customers free of additional charge.

On Demand, Fine Living, Food Network, HGTV, History Channel and NFL On Demand. All Cox Digital Cable customers automatically have access to the FreeZone through the On DEMAND platform.

"FreeZone now delivers a vast array of compelling programming to Cox Digital Cable customers, offered on-demand so that they can watch at times that are convenient for them," said David Pugliese, vice president of product marketing and management. "We know that our customers increasingly want to watch television on their own schedule, with features and controls that allow them to stop, pause and rewind. We are thrilled to offer some of the country's best cable programming in this format, greatly enhancing the value of Cox Digital Cable for our customers."

In addition to content from popular cable networks, FreeZone also offers entertaining and engaging commercial content such as movie trailers, music videos and product information from clients of Cox Media, the advertising sales arm of Cox Communications.
