Cablevision Systems Corp. has added its eighth subscription-video-on-demand service, launching here! TV, the gay- and lesbian-themed programming service, for $6.95 per month.

"The addition of here! on demand is a perfect example of the power of digital cable to deliver a vast array of content choices to an expanding and diverse base of customers," said Kristin Dolan, senior vice president of consumer-product management at Cablevision, in a prepared statement.

Cablevision is offering 30 hours of here! programming per month, including original-movie premieres, talk and lifestyle series, biographies, classic gay cinema and musicals and variety shows.

The MSO's other SVOD packages are Home Box Office, Showtime, Cinemax, Anime Network, Disney Channel, The Independent Film Channel and Playboy TV.
