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 VOD 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
