Verizon on Thursday launched a full suite of Walt Disney Co. video content on its broadband service and FiOS TV on-demand platform.
ABC News, Disney Online, ESPN, and Movies.com are among the Disney-owned contributors to the Verizon offerings. The two companies announced a broad content agreement in September.
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 Movies.com Max. Soapnetic, an online extension of Disney-owned cable channel SoapNet, will be added this year.
FiOS TV, a new multichannel alternative to cable and satellite that Verizon has introduced, 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.
