OEN to Carry MavTV


Optical Entertainment Network Inc. will add MavTV to its basic lineup under terms of a carriage agreement announced Thursday.

The men’s-targeted channel will be available on OEN’s “Fision” service, which will bring digital Internet-protocol-video, telephony and Internet service to 1.6 million homes passed in Houston over an existing fiber network covering most of the city.

“MavTV brings a fresh, unique voice to men’s programming that we believe will resonate with our customer base and help to differentiate our service offerings from the alternatives,” OEN CEO Thomas Wendt said in a prepared statement.
