THE WALL STREET JOURNAL -- Dec 15 -- Dating on Demand, a service being rolled out by Comcast makes it possible for singles to use their remotes to view hundreds of video profiles self-made by singles in their region. Viewers can make contact through one of the online dating sites that work with Comcast on the service, primarily Hurrydate.com. There is typically no charge for singles or others to post videos, although viewers who want to meet someone they see on Dating on Demand have to sign up for the online dating service. In the case of HurryDate, that costs $19.95 a month. (Singles who post a video profile get a free six-month subscription.) Currently, only eight of Comcast's systems allow local singles to produce their own Dating on Demand segments, but Comcast executives say more will be added next year. Comcast today gets most of its videos by hosting singles events.
