On Friday, we told you about Google's YouTube Fireplace for Chromecast. It's essentially an hour-long video of a fireplace burning with a dog sitting in a chair. Simple, but people seem to like it.

Well, if you're a Time Warner subscriber, you'll have a cable alternative to Google's fireplace with the Time Warner Yule Log. It's been offered in the past, and is now back in SD, HD and 3D via Video On Demand. It's also available on the web via RentMoviesOnDemand.com.

"This smoke-free and stoke-free fireplace will warm up any holiday party when a big-screen TV is transformed into a crackling hearth with just a click of a button," the company says. "Adding to the popular Yule Log, customers can also enjoy Winter Green, a snowy, pine forest setting and Snowman, dressed in top hat, scarf and neckerchief withstanding a windy, snowy storm. All three offerings will help viewers get into the holiday spirit, accompanied by traditional carols like Joy to the World, Hark the Herald Angels Sing and We Wish You a Merry Christmas."

Unfortunately, neither Google's fireplace nor Time Warners log will keep you warm.
