Verizon’s FiOS TV customers can now enjoy even more high-definition
programming, with the addition of HDNet and HDNet Movies to Verizon’s
industry-leading Video on Demand (VOD) service.
"We continue to expand our massive VOD collection with more HD
programming not offered by cable," said Terry Denson, vice president of
content strategy and acquisition for Verizon. "With more than 20 hours
of HD programming from HDNet and more than 25 free movies from HDNet
Movies – every month – FiOS TV subscribers now have more entertainment
than ever before right at their fingertips, any time they choose."
Mark Cuban, chairman and co-founder of HDNet, said, "HDNet and
Verizon FiOS are a winning HD combination. We offer all of our
programming in true high definition, and when delivered over Verizon’s
all fiber-optic network, the pure HD picture-and-sound quality will
just blow you away."
HDNet and HDNet Movies are available on VOD to all FiOS TV
subscribers with an HD set-top box. HDNet offers unique and
provocative content, including blockbuster concerts, in-depth news from
"Dan Rather Reports," exciting mixed martial arts events from around
the globe from HDNet Fights, Ring of Honor Wrestling and the exotic
travel locales of "Get Out!" Much of the HDNet content will be
available on demand within 24 hours of its network premiere, and will
be refreshed weekly.
FiOS TV customers will also have access to more than 25 movies every
month from HDNet Movies, which includes top performing, critically
acclaimed feature films and box office hits. Films currently available
include "Lost in Translation," "21 Grams," "Hoosiers," "Waterworld,"
"The Nutty Professor," "Darkman," "The Illusionist" and many more.
HDNet and HDNet Movies join FiOS TV’s extensive VOD offering of more
than 18,000 monthly titles in every market, including more than 2,400
HD titles. FiOS TV customers can access on-demand content simply by
pressing the "VOD" or "On Demand" button on their FiOS remote control,
by using the menu on FiOS TV’s Interactive Media Guide, or by selecting
VOD channel 900.
