TVN Entertainment Corp. will provide distribution and advanced asset-management services for certain video-on-demand packages offered by The Walt Disney Co.’s cable and broadcast networks under terms of a deal announced Wednesday.

The company added that the VOD fare -- from ESPN Networks, ABC News, ABC Family, Radio Disney, Jetix, SOAPnet, Disney Channel and Toon Disney -- is being distributed by TVN to all Verizon Communications Inc. Verizon FiOS TV subscribers.

“TVN is delighted to provide VOD services for such a well-respected brand as ESPN/ABC-Disney,” senior vice president of affiliate sales John Smith said in a prepared statement. “We are looking forward to supporting this new relationship, which provides another opportunity to show off our rapid VOD turnaround services for the timely and high-profile content offered by ESPN and other Disney networks.”
