Turner Broadcasting System, Inc. and Verizon today announced a comprehensive long-term distribution agreement that will deliver content from Turner’s leading portfolio of networks to FiOS TV customers, across a variety of screens, including television, PC, tablet and handheld devices. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed. As part of the agreement, FiOS TV subscribers will receive a robust offering of on-demand programming, as well as live streaming of all major Turner networks that can be viewed in and out of the home across multiple devices, enabled by expansive TV Everywhere rights that provide subscribers more opportunities and easier access to authenticated content. FiOS TV and FiOS Internet customers will ultimately have easier, instant access to Turner brands through an automatic login, providing a seamless and consumer-friendly experience on both Turner’s and Verizon’s platforms. The new agreement provides the more than 5 million Verizon FiOS TV subscribers with a broad array of diverse, entertaining and informative content from Turner’s award-winning and popular entertainment, kids, news, sports and young adult programming.
