NEW YORK, Dec. 24 (UPI) -- The traditional "Yule Log" program is available online and through digital cable television in the United States through Jan. 2, its distributor announced.

The image of a glowing log on a hearth, accompanied by traditional Christmas music, can be viewed for free at rentmoviesondemand.com and through video-on-demand for Xfinity, Cox Communications, Cablevision, Time Warner Cable, Bright House Networks, Cablevision, Midcontinent and RCN cable systems.

"This smoke-free and stoke-free fireplace will warm up any holiday party when a big-screen TV is transformed into a crackling hearth," a news release from distributor iN Demand said.

The original televised "Yule Log" has been airing on broadcast TV since 1966.

iN Demand first produced the high-definition version starting in 2002 and then lit it up on video-on-demand in 2007.

A 3D version, which became available in 2010, was originally produced exclusively for cable. To see the 3D version, viewers need a 3D TV with compatible 3D glasses and an HD set-top box connected according to their system's specs.

The program will also air on the Tribune-owned super-stations WGN, Chicago, and on WPIX, New York, Christmas morning.
