Verizon and entertainment network Pop, owned by the CBS Corporation and Lionsgate, have announced a long-term carriage extension to continue distribution of Pop’s fan-infused original programming to Verizon’s Fios TV customers nationwide. Verizon also receives broad distribution rights to Pop programming across its digital platforms, including TV Everywhere, go90 and more.
“Pop continues to be a supportive, innovative and flexible content partner of Verizon’s,” said Ben Grad, executive director of content strategy and acquisition for Verizon. “We were pleased to be able to extend and expand this relationship so that our customers could engage with Pop content on Fios TV and Fios Mobile, and potentially also through other platforms within Verizon’s growing distribution portfolio.”
“Verizon has been a great and supportive partner since 2005,” added David Mandell, COO of Pop. “We’re excited that Pop’s distinctive line-up of original programming will continue to be part of Verizon’s content offerings, as it reinvents the MVPD landscape.”
