The Canadian debut of Eurocinema, an video on-demand service celebrating European and international film, has been announced by Shaw Communications.

"Until now, regular access to foreign films has been somewhat limited in Canada," said Peter Bissonnette, President, Shaw Communications Inc. "We're thrilled to welcome Eurocinema to our Video On Demand line-up so our customers can experience international cinema right from the comfort of their homes," he said.

Eurocinema will make its debut with eight, two-hour themed blocks, totaling 16 hours of original programming. Each feature film will serve as the centerpiece of a two-hour hosted thematic programming block designed to provide perspective on the main theme, with supplemental contact such as host commentary, original documentaries, director interviews, as well as rarely seen short-format films relevant to the feature. Each block is available individually for $3.99 through Shaw Video On Demand and content will be refreshed monthly.

Shaw Communications Inc. is a diversified Canadian communications company whose core business is providing broadband cable television, High-Speed Internet, Digital Phone, telecommunications services (through Big Pipe Inc.) and satellite direct-to-home services (through Star Choice Communications Inc.) to over three million customers. Shaw is traded on the Toronto and New York stock exchanges and is included in the S&P/TSX 60 index.

Eurocinema is a Video On Demand service offering fans of global cinema access to feature movies otherwise unavailable to them and providing foreign film makers unprecedented visibility in front of U.S. and Canadian viewers and the Hollywood creative community. Eurocinema is available on over 50 cable TV systems serving nearly 10,000,000 subscribers, with new systems being added monthly.
