(“Sponsor”), which shall be final and binding in all respects.

Subject to all applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations, and void where prohibited by law.

HOW TO ENTER:   To enter, you must be a registered user of Twitter and a follower of the @moviesondemand Twitter handle. If you are not a Twitter member, you may register for free at www.Twitter.com.  During the Promotion Period:

On March 8, 2013 at approximately 5 p.m. ET, a Tweet containing the Sweepstakes call to action (the “Call to Action”) will be posted on @moviesondemand. To automatically receive one (1) entry into the random drawing, re-tweet the Call to Action during the Promotion Period.  

In the event of a dispute regarding the identity of the individual who actually submitted an entry cannot be resolved to Sponsor’s satisfaction, the affected entry will be deemed ineligible. The Promotion Entities shall not be responsible for incorrect or inaccurate entry information whether caused by Internet users or by any of the equipment or programming associated with or utilized in the Sweepstakes or by any technical or human error which may occur in the processing of the entries, tweets, or re-tweets in the Sweepstakes.

LIMIT ONE (1) ENTRY PER PERSON PER REGISTERED TWITTER ACCOUNT.  

WINNER SELECTION AND NOTIFICATION:  
At the end of each Promotion Period, ten (10) prize winners will be selected in a random drawing conducted by Sponsor from among all eligible entries received. The prize winners will be notified by direct message on Twitter. The selected winners will be required to respond (as directed) to the notification within twenty-four (24) hours (or a shorter time if required by exigencies) of attempted notification. The failure to respond timely to the notification may result in forfeiture of the prize. Sponsor, in its sole discretion, may attempt to contact up to two (2) alternate potential winners of a prize in accordance with the above procedure, after which the prize in question may go unawarded if it remains unclaimed. If any potential prize winner is found to be ineligible, or if he or she has not complied with these Official Rules or declines the prize for any reason prior to award, such potential prize winner may be disqualified and an alternate prize winner may be selected. Odds of winning depend on the number of eligible entries received.
