Michael Moore wanted a pay-per-view home for his “Fahrenheit 9/11” documentary and now he has one. TVN Entertainment said it has secured the exclusive PPV cable rights for the controversial film for one night only — Nov. 1. The film will be offered the night before the presidential election at 8 p.m. and 11 p.m. ET, so that it can have 8 p.m. showings on both coasts. TVN said its PPV affiliates include Mediacom, Blue Ridge Communications and some Adelphia systems, but it will make the film available on a PPV basis to other cable operators. The Nov. 1 airing is a full 30 days prior to the standard PPV and video-on-demand window for the movie.
