Pics get distribution on Movies on Demand

This year’s Oscar-nominated shorts will be available for the first time through Movies on Demand, starting today.

Viewers can find both the live-action and animated categories on Comcast (under “Oscar Nominees” and “Top Pick”), Time Warner Cable, Cox Communications and Bright House Networks (all under “Award Nominees”).

Presented by Shorts Intl. and Magnolia Pictures, the VOD screenings come on top of the shorts’ theatrical runs, which have showcased the pics for a wider audience during the past five years.

Cost of viewing varies depending on programming, ranging from $2.99 to $5.99.
