The pay-for-gay TV service called Here has now arrived in Kansas City, Time Warner Cable announced on Friday. For a fee of $6.95 a month, digital cable customers in the Missouri metropolis can access Here's programming whenever they want, as many times as they want--a service known as subscription video-on-demand.
"Here is extremely pleased that Time Warner Cable is providing its digital customers in Kansas City with the opportunity to subscribe to Here on a monthly basis," Here senior vice president Maria Dwyer said in a statement. "Now viewers in Kansas City can enjoy watching award-winning and critically acclaimed gay and lesbian entertainment on Here whenever they like, for one affordable price."
"Time Warner Cable is able to serve our vast and diverse customer base with a wide variety of cable programming available through our digital services," added Time Warner spokesman Damon Porter in the same press release. "We are proud to offer Here and the important voice it provides Kansas City. As an On Demand product we are giving viewers the ability to access programming on their own schedule."
Here, which launched in 2002 and claims to be available in 50 million U.S. homes, offers original programming that includes the supernatural soap opera Dante's Cove as well as John Waters Presents Movies That Will Corrupt You and the upcoming second Donald Strachey mystery movie, Shock to the System, starring Chad Allen as the gay detective.
