Fox and Verizon Ink New Multi-Year Distribution Deal – Deadline


Fox has entered into a multi-year renewal of its distribution deal with Verizon for its Fios TV platform.

The deal encompasses the full portfolio of Fox brands – Fox News Media, Fox Sports, Fox Network – with the new addition of Fox Weather as part of the package, and the AVOD Tubi service making its debut in Fios TV set-top boxes.

The deal covers local Fox O&O television stations in markets including New York, Washington, DC and Philadelphia.

“Fox is thrilled to extend and expand its long-standing relationship with Verizon by adding Fox Weather and Tubi to our industry-leading portfolio of news, sports and entertainment available to Verizon subscribers,” said Michael Biard, chairman of Fox Corp. , Operations and Distribution.

Fox launched the ad-supported Fox Weather platform last fall with a team of weather forecasters and a mix of local, regional and national updates. It is led by President Sharri Berg, Chief News and Operations Officer for Fox Television Stations.

The New York-based platform debuted the Fox Weather app along with an integrated website and streaming service, leveraging a team of 75 meteorologists across 17 stations and weather units. FNC news gathering.
