Verizon FiOS Fiber-To-The-Premises Broadband Network Signs More Content Providers

Verizon has signed content agreements with The America Channel, Blackbelt TV, Expo TV, LIME and the Pentagon Channel, each of which will produce a range of entertainment and informational programming for Verizon FiOS TV. Under the agreements, Verizon will carry the channels on Verizon FiOS TV when it launches later this year.

They will complement other major cable and network channels available to Verizon subscribers including previously announced programming content agreements with A&E, Discovery, NBC Universal, Showtime, Starz Entertainment and TBS.

Verizon FiOS TV will deliver hundreds of digital video and music channels, high-def programming, VOD content, an interactive programming guide and other features via the company's "fiber-to-the-premises" broadband network. FiOS TV will have an initial launch in 15 states.
