Verizon Communications has stocked the TV Everywhere buffet for FiOS TV subs with content from 11 NBCUniversal networks, under a pact the companies signed last fall.
The NBCU programming, available through the telco’s My Verizon portal, includes shows from Bravo, USA, Oxygen, MSNBC, CNBC, NBC News, NBC, Syfy, mun2, Telemundo and Cozi TV. In addition, FiOS TV customers can access a live simulcast of CNBC.
Next month, Verizon expects to “launch a few more NBCU networks,” according to spokeswoman Heather Wilner.
In November, NBCU announced a wide-ranging program carriage deal with Verizon FiOS that includes the TV Everywhere rights.
NBCU also has TV Everywhere agreements with Comcast -- which last week announced it would buy out GE’s 49% interest in NBCU to gain full ownership -- as well as Suddenlink Communications and Cablevision Systems.
For its part, Verizon has TV Everywhere agreements with other programmers including ESPN, Turner Broadcasting System, HBO, Fox, NFL Network, Showtime Networks, Starz and Viacom.
