TVN Entertainment Corp. will offer encore presentations of Sundance Channel’s Festival Dailies on-demand via its "TVNow" rapid turnaround service, the programmer said Tuesday.

Actor, comedian and best-selling author Jay Mohr will host Festival Dailies, Sundance’s daily program produced onsite at the Sundance Film Festival from Park City, Utah.

Festival Dailies will air on Sundance Jan. 24-28 at 9 p.m. for a half-hour and Jan. 29 at the same time for one hour, with the wrap-up edition featuring the announcement of the festival winners.

Sundance will make daily episodes of Festival Dailies available as encore presentations on-demand Jan. 25-March 1.

“As Sundance Channel continues to find innovative ways to exploit the VOD platform for our affiliates, we will rely on our strong partnership with TVN,” Sundance director of new media and VOD Shannon Rednour said in a prepared statement.

TVN vice president of business development Matt Cohen added, “We are thrilled to be supporting yet another original program from Sundance Channel that will certainly motivate audiences to sample and use on-demand.”
