Verizon Offers Its Customers the Most Extensive Online and
Video-On-Demand Content Available From Disney and ESPN Networks,

NEW YORK and BURBANK, Calif., Feb. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- As more
consumers turn to the Internet and on-demand TV services for
entertainment, Verizon is introducing to its consumer broadband and
FIOS TV customers an extensive, new lineup of entertainment and
informational programming from ABC News, Disney Online, ESPN and Verizon is the only broadband provider to offer a full
collection of content from Disney and ESPN Networks on both its
consumer broadband and television platforms.

The launch follows the announcement in September of wide-ranging video
and broadband content agreements between Verizon and The Walt Disney
Company. The online programming includes live video news feeds, live
sports events, children's entertainment and other content specially
targeted to broadband Internet users. Other special broadband content
includes live local sports action like the recent Villanova-South
Florida men's basketball game aired live in the Tampa area on ESPN360,
which is only available in that market via Verizon Online.
