Newsmax TV Signs with Verizon FiOS in Distribution Deal

By    |   Tuesday, 10 Feb 2015 01:56 PM

Newsmax TV has significantly expanded its national carriage, signing a long-term distribution deal with Verizon FiOS.

The news, information and lifestyle-focused channel, which targets the under-served Baby Boomer audience, will be adding more than 5 million Verizon FiOS TV viewers to its current distribution. It is now available on FiOS on Channel 115. Newsmax TV is currently available to DISH and DIRECTV customers.

Under the new FiOS agreement, Newsmax TV is now available to more than 40 million U.S. satellite and cable TV homes.

In January, Newsmax announced it had signed with the NCTC, the country’s largest cable cooperative, to gain access to its 12 million subscribers.

This agreement with Verizon puts Newsmax on the path to reaching 55 million cable and satellite subscribers by the end of 2015. Newsmax TV’s live stream is also available to approximately 100 million iOS and Android smartphone and OTT devices.

“During the past six months, Newsmax TV has exceeded our initial goal of signing 20 million cable homes by more than 100 percent, with our channel reaching over 40 million U.S. homes, or 40 percent of the U.S. market,” Newsmax Media CEO Christopher Ruddy said. “Verizon FiOS is a powerful and popular brand for cable TV customers, and our agreement with them marks a strategically important development for Newsmax TV.”

With FiOS TV, customers can watch their favorite TV shows either at home or on the go with the free FiOS Mobile App. Customers can watch up to 88 live TV channels out of the home and over 168 live in-home via their iPad, iPhone, select Android tablets, phones and Kindle Fire tablets, delivering anytime, anywhere access.

Soft launched in June, Newsmax TV is the first online digital channel to have significantly crossed over to become a traditional cable/satellite offering.

Newsmax TV’s approach has been to offer independent news from a heartland perspective, giving viewers not only the latest on politics and current events, but practical information on health, money and lifestyle.

FiOS TV offers a broad collection of programming on TV and industry-leading picture quality. Customers have access to more than 625 all-digital channels, up to 185 HD channels, and a continually growing selection of over 100,000 Video On Demand titles, including over 40,000 in HD.

With headquarters in West Palm Beach and Boca Raton, Fla., plus additional studios in New York, Newsmax TV currently offers 10 hours of live programming, which will expand to 18 hours of live programming when it has its formal launch later this year.
