This month, Xfinity TV is currently bringing customers more than 20 new release indie films, including Ed Burns' new movie Newlyweds. Xfinity digital video customers can watch Newlyweds on Xfinity On Demand and XfinityTV.com this week, before it even hits theaters. Customers can also catch a free 10-minute preview of the film as well as extra content.

We caught up with Ed Burns to chat with him about why the video-on-demand platform is such an important part of the independent film world. Watch the video below to see what Ed has to say.

We'll also be hosting a live Q&A with film critic Caryn James and Edward Burns on January 3, 2012, beginning at 8pm EST at facebook.com/xfinity. There you'll be able to ask Ed and Caryn questions about Newlyweds and more.
