Discovery OTT content for Verizon
August 6, 2015
Discovery Communications has agreed a deal to sell programming to Verizon for its upcoming mobile video service.
“This deal extends our platform reach to Verizon customers beyond our traditional pay-TV customer base and adds yet another source to our distribution revenue stream,” commented Discovery CEO David Zaslav.
Verizon will launch its programming service in the US later this summer. Branded “Go90”, it will feature full episodes of TV shows, along with music videos and other short-form content.
