Cablevision Systems has added Veria Living, a network that features healthy lifestyle and wellness programming, on channel 164 across its New York metro area footprint.
Veria Living, based in New York, is also available via Dish Network (channel 218), Verizon FiOS (channel 162), Frontier Communications (channel 162) and on RCN systems in several markets.
“We provide our customers with diverse, high-quality programming that keeps them engaged, and the addition of Veria Living to Optimum TV’s channel lineup is a strong addition that aligns with this strategy,” Cablevision vice president of video product management Bradley Feldman said in announcing the channel addition.
Veria Living in January 2013 plans to debut a slate of new original programming, produced at its recently opened midtown Manhattan studios. Those include shows featuring plant-based nutritionist Julieanna Hever, naturopathic doctor Dr. Holly Lucille, spice expert Nirmala Nardine, holistic nutritionist Peggy Kotsopoulos, well-known yoga instructor Sadie Nardini and former New York Yankees trainer-turned-yogi Jai Sugrim.
“The New Year marks a time of renewal and rejuvenation,” Veria Living general manager Paul Cestari said in a statement. “With the help of Veria Living’s healthy lifestyle programming, Optimum TV’s viewers will embark on their wellness journey backed by a team of experts who will enlighten, educate and keep them entertained along the way.”
