THE YULE LOG IS BACK FOR THE 2015 HOLIDAY SEASON ON DIGITAL CABLE FREE ON DEMAND IN SD, HD, 3D AND ONLINE

New York, December 10 – After years of adding new elements to the Yule Log such as HD, 3D, Winter Scenes, and last year a Menorah, you might be thinking “what can they possibly do for an encore?” Well, once again the televised Yule Log on digital cable is back this year in SD, HD and in 3D* via free Video On Demand (VOD) and online. But this year, along with the virtual fireplace and traditional snowman, we have upped the ante with a wealth of new Happy Holidays Videos, each a colorful one-hour video accompanied by a wide range of festive music. From a rockin’ snowboarding snowman, to a welcoming front door wreath, kittens frolicking in gift boxes, irresistible puppies, a funky holiday tree, kaleidoscopic fanstasmagorical snowflake designs and more.
These creative video confections are available via free VOD* with just a click of a button for most digital cable subscribers including Comcast Xfinity, Cox Communications, Time Warner Cable, Bright House Networks, Cablevision Optimum, and RCN. Viewers can check their Free On Demand folders (see exact locations below), but anyone can access these videos on any device online at www.indemand.com/holiday. And while the virtual hearth is burning or puppies are jumping, they can also browse through the hottest movies available instantly via cable’s Movies On Demand (MOD).

Broman the Snowman
Funky Christmas Tree
The Nutcracker Sweet
Traditional Christmas Tree

While the original televised Yule Log has been airing on broadcast TV since 1966, distributor iN DEMAND first produced the high definition version starting in 2002 for its then linear channel INHD, and then premiered it on Video On Demand starting in 2007. The 3D version, which started in 2010, is originally produced exclusively for cable by iN DEMAND using the latest 3D technology. To see the 3D version, viewers need a 3D TV with compatible 3D glasses and an HD set-top box connected according to their system’s specs. The HD offerings were filmed with HD cameras and are presented in 1080i picture and 5.1 sound. The 3D version was produced by Offhollywood Digital using Red 1 cameras and an Element Technica 3D rig. The eight-day Menorah was added in 2014 and the new video confections added in 2015.
The Yule Log and all Happy Holiday Videos are produced and distributed to cable by iN DEMAND. More info at
