MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Oct. 5, 2010) - Cogeco Cable (TSX:CCA) today announced it has signed an agreement with Global to offer some of the network's most popular series on Cogeco On Demand. All Ontario Digital TV customers who have Video On Demand (VOD) now have a free opportunity to watch any Global shows they may have missed.

"Our customers are real fans of certain TV series, but sometimes their schedules just don't allow them to tune in. We wanted to give them more control over their TV experience and provide them with a simple way to catch up with their favourite series, for free. That's what we had in mind when we signed this agreement with Global," declared Ron Perrotta, Vice-President, Marketing and Strategic Planning at Cogeco Cable.

Ontario customers will be able to easily access Global's roster of new series and returning fan favourites including Hawaii Five-0, Glee, The Good Wife, Survivor, Lie to Me, NCIS, Bones, Family Guy, The Young and the Restless, Days Of Our Lives and ET Canada as they become available by selecting "Global On Demand" from the "TV Shows" option in the Cogeco On Demand main menu (Channel 299). New episodes will be added each week.

"VOD is like a video club in the comfort of your own home, offering the ability to catch up on episodes you may have missed. At Cogeco, we intend to build on this very popular service among our customers and continue to offer the most exciting and relevant VOD content," added Mr. Perrotta.
