Verizon Signs Multi-screen Deal with NBCUniversal
-Also Puts 75 Channels on iPad

NBCUniversal and Verizon have announced a new deal that will
bring NBCU content to multiple screens for Verizon’s FiOS
subscribers. Subscribers will be able to access linear cable
networks such as USA, Bravo, CNBC, MSNBC, Oxygen and SyFy on
mobile devices. The deal includes retransmission consent for
local NBC and Telemundo stations. Users will be able to access
linear and on-demand programming using mobile connected
devices, outside of the home, sometime next year.

Verizon FiOS subscribers also now have access to 75 additional
channels on their tablets through an updated iPad app. The new
FiOS app gives subscribers access to the linear channels live
(over the home Wi-Fi, of course), but does not include local
broadcast networks such as ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox or PBS. The app
also allows users to schedule DVR recordings, browse TV
listings, and use their iPad as a remote.
