Critically acclaimed Brian De Palma film will be the first movie available to cable and satellite subscribers prior to its theatrical release as part of the new HDNet Ultra VOD platform

DALLAS (October 29, 2007) - When the Brian De Palma film REDACTED premiered to audiences at the Venice International Film Festival, critics raved, calling it "outstanding," "sensational" and "unflinching." Ray Bennett of The Hollywood Reporter called REDACTED a "shocking and deeply moving" film. Now the film will be the first offering on the HDNet Ultra Video On Demand platform, which will allow viewers access to movies PRIOR to the movie's theatrical premiere.

HDNet Ultra VOD allows consumers to watch specially selected theatrical releases from their cable or satellite provider's (as well as selected hotels') selection of On Demand Movies starting as early as three weeks prior to their premiere in theaters. Watching an HDNet Ultra VOD release is as easy as calling your cable or satellite provider and asking them to add it to your programming guide. You do not need to be an HDNet subscriber to participate.

In addition to the On Demand access, HDNet Ultra VOD offers a special free Sneak Preview showing on HDNet Movies two days prior to the movies premiere in theaters.

"HDNet once again is breaking new ground with theatrical release windows," said Mark Cuban. "With HDNet Ultra VOD, we have once again expanded consumer choice and allowed them to see movies how, where and when they want to see them. Hopefully this will change the landscape of independent film allowing movies to gain awareness and momentum going into their theatrical release."
