Verizon's FiOS TV to Carry Sinclair Stations
Verizon has struck a multi-year retransmission deal with the Sinclair Broadcast Group to carry the analog and digital signals of Sinclair stations WBFF and WNUV in Baltimore and WTTA in Tampa, Fla. on Verizon's FiOS telco TV service. Verizon plans to launch its FiOS-TV service in both of these markets to compete with cable and satellite program providers.

Barry Farber, vice president and general counsel for Sinclair said the agreement was made possible "because Verizon recognized the value of being able to carry our signals, which allowed for an appropriate economic agreement to be reached."

Farber said that he looked forward to working with Verizon as its FiOS-TV business grew and anticipated entering into similar carriage agreements with the company in other Sinclair markets.
