Illusion On-Demand, the first cable VOD channel dedicated to science fiction & fantasy, is set to launch October 2007., offering programming which includes live-action premieres, award-winning films, anime and news.
Included in Illusion's initial lineup fans will find the anime series Now and Then, Here and There, VOD premieres of several BBC series including Strange, a monthly selection of camp in the form of the Troma Creature Feature and a roundtable discussion series Analog: The Science of Fiction moderated by editors of the Analog: Science Fiction and Fact magazine. Also included in the initial lineup will be features, shorts, mini-series and shows on television dedicated comic book news and interviews.
Dekker Dreyer, president of Illusion, told SFcrownest.com, "When my partners and I imagined an all sci-fi /fantasy VOD network we really had to work backwards. We decided that our programming needed to have a good mix of premieres, exciting movies, but all the while celebrating the classics. The sci-fi audience is very smart, and my partners and I have taken great care to program a diverse lineup that fans will really enjoy."
