Is On Demand free?

Ive never used it before and I was just wondering if it was free or not.

If you have the proper equipment, most of the content is free. There are pay per view programs, also.

For free, you will typically get access to programs from channels that are part of your subscription, along with various local and some free movies. There are also many PPV movies. If you have kids, you definitely want to set up a Purchase PIN. Even without kids, I still have one (yes, it's just a simple 1234), to make it very obvious something will cost $$.
