It's easy as ABC for BT's new VOD service

BT has announced that it has done a deal with Disney to bring American network ABC to its BT Vision service, VOD-stylee.

The service will see shows from ABC being made available after their first UK linear broadcast as well as past series of ABC shows as well.

ABC's line-up includes Cougar Town, Private Practice, Desperate Housewives and Ugly Betty. We know what you're thinking - this could be one for the ladies.

Marc Watson, chief executive of television and online services at BT Retail, said:

"ABC TV On Demand is Disney's first launch of an ABC-branded on demand entertainment service outside of the US".

"BT Vision customers will be able to start, pause or rewind their favourite shows whenever they want without having to fit in with a broadcaster’s schedule or missing an episode". 

"This is just the latest addition to BT Vision’s array of on-demand channels including Discovery, National Geographic and MTV".

The service will cost £6.99 a month if you want it on an eat-as-much-as-you-like basis, or you can pick and choose your episodes at 99p a pop.

ABC TV On Demand goes live on 15 September.
