True Video On Demand - (TVOD) - (Now just known as Video on Demand) - An older antiquated term for video on demand (VOD) service where individual end-users would get immediate responses when interacting with the Video on Demand system. With TVOD, the user would order the program at will and be able to do VCR-like commands on the VOD system with the same quick response time as when operating a VCR. This increased speed of the response time can significantly increase the cost of operating a VOD system. An alternative was Near Video on Demand (NVOD) as it reduced the cost by increasing the waiting time. TVOD is more often just known as VOD (Video on Demand) as it is the standard form of VOD in television now.
