Parent Category 22-07-2013
Verizon and the Disney and ESPN Media Networks Group have signed a TV everywhere agreement to provide Verizon FiOS customers the WATCH ABC, WATCH Disney Channel, WATCH Disney XD and WATCH Disney Junior authenticated services, as well as the yet-to-be-launched WATCH ABC Family service.
Verizon will also add Fusion, a soon-to-be launched news, information and lifestyle multiplatform network for Hispanics. The English-language joint venture from ABC and Univision is set to launch later this year.
"Adding WATCH Disney and WATCH ABC programming today, as well as the Fusion and WATCH ABC Family offerings soon, is the perfect addition to our TV everywhere line-up for FiOS customers, now up to 53 partner channels," said Maitreyi Krishnaswamy, director of FiOS TV product strategy and development. "Whether you are watching your favourite shows in the family room, in the car, on vacation, on the plane or at Grandma's house, TV everywhere is what it's all about. And nothing says family and FiOS like Disney."
