Verizon and Disney agree wide ranging content deal

Verizon and Disney have just announced details of a wide ranging content deal that will both boost Verizon's DSL services and Verizon vdeo-on-demand.

Subscribers to Verizon Online DSL or Verizon FiOS Internet access will be able to watch programming provided by ABC News Now, Disney Connection, ESPN360 and Max.

And Fios TV, Verizon's recently launched alternative to cable and satellite, will make available more than 80 hours a month of on-demand programming from Disney Channel, Toon Disney, Radio Disney, Jetix, ABC News, ABC Family, SoapNet, ESPN Desportes and ESPNU.

Perfect for more syntilating couch potatoing. Verizon and AT&T are moving fast. All these digital distribution options, including cable, satellite, fibre and mobile prove more than ever that the ultimate winners will be the content creators and owners.
