Verizon Debuts Ion Suite in Boston


Verizon has launched Ion Media Networks’ channel suite – which includes digi-nets qubo, Ion Life and The Worship Network -- on its FiOS lineup in Boston, officials said Tuesday. The launch follows the recent addition of the ION channel suite in the New York and Northern New Jersey markets.

Under the terms of the distribution agreement, Verizon agreed to carry the flagship Ion Television Network, which airs a mix of popular TV series, movies, sports and specials targeted towards a broad audience.

In addition, Verizon will offer Ion’s 24-hour linear digital networks: qubo, a children’s network focusing on values and literacy; Ion Life, a channel focusing on active living and personal growth, and The Worship Network, a channel featuring inspirational programming.
