Cox Communications Enhances Customers' Digital Experience with New Subscription on Demand Programming Line Up; Cox to add WWE 24/7, here! and Anime to On Demand Library.

ATLANTA -- Cox Communications announced today that it is adding three new subscription video on demand services to its On Demand library. Digital cable customers in select Cox markets will soon have access to even more On Demand content with the addition of Anime Network On Demand, here! and WWE 24/7(R). These subscription services are available for $6.95 each per month. Content will begin rolling out in select markets at the end of March.

Anime Network is the first channel in North America dedicated to the growing cultural phenomenon of Japanese animation. Subscribers can receive 25 hours of original programming, with new content added every week.

Digital cable customers can have access to 30 hours of programming from here! including original feature-length films and series and selections from the world's largest gay and lesbian film library.

All of its critically acclaimed content will be targeted to a broad-based gay and lesbian audience.

WWE 24/7 includes the best of World Wrestling Entertainment's past cable, broadcast, Pay-Per-View and home videos, from WWE and other leading promoters. Subscribers can access programming including marquee attractions like WrestleMania and Monday Night War. Also included are new original short- and long-form programs.

"We're excited to announce the availability of this new subscription On Demand content," said Bob Wilson, senior vice president of programming. "WWE, here! and Anime bring a vast array of programming choices to our On Demand line up that only digital cable customers can access. On Demand is not available on satellite, making it even clearer why Cox is the best choice for entertainment services in our markets."

Anime Network, here! and WWE 24/7 are available to Cox Digital Cable customers on a subscription basis. Customers can control On Demand content with full DVD-like functionality including pause, fast forward and rewind.

Cox's current subscription video On Demand content includes premium channels On Demand such as:
