This agreement shouldn’t come as a surprise after NBCUniversal struck a similar deal early this month with Cablevision. The cable and phone companies are engaged in the business equivalent of hand-to-hand combat in the tri-state area around New York City. Early next year Verizon FiOS subscribers will be able to watch programming from all of NBCU’s broadcast stations and cable networks both live and on-demand, and both in and out of the home. NBCU EVP Matt Bond says that the mobile streaming will work “on any device.” In addition to the traditional programming, the deal includes “expansive rights to carry the Olympic Games as well as carriage of Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia, Comcast SportsNet Mid Atlantic, The Comcast Network-Philadelphia and Comcast SportsNet New England.” The companies didn’t say how long the agreement runs and disclosed no financial terms.
