The article focuses on the on-demand distribution deal made by Turner Classic Movies (TCM) with Time Warner Cable. "Mildred Pierce" and "Night of the Iguana" are some of the classic-film titles that will be provided by TCM to Time Warner Cable subscribers. TCM is also looking to other technology that will appeal to viewers beyond the 25-to-54 classic film fans. TCM plans to launch a film-database site in 2005.
