Verizon Fills Keller Lineup Card

Publish date:

Verizon hasn’t released the programming roster for its video trial in Keller, Texas. But on Friday, posted two Verizon documents listing the channel lineup and pricing.

The documents detailed a 160-channel expanded-basic package that will cost $39.95 per month. A movie tier containing Showtime Networks Inc. and Starz Entertainment Group channels costs an additional $9.95 monthly.

Premium channels Home Box Office, Cinemax and Playboy TV cost an additional $14.95 per month, or subscribers can opt to pay $24.95 for both HBO and Cinemax.

Verizon will evidently group networks by genre, similar to how DirecTV Inc. and EchoStar Communications Corp. package their satellite services.

Verizon is also offering a broad free video-on-demand library, including programming from ESPN, ESPNU, ESPN Deportes, Fox Sports Español, Fox Soccer Channel, Speed Channel, Fuel, ABC News, Cable News Network, SoapNet, Home & Garden Television, Do It Yourself, Fine Living, A&E Network, ABC Family, Black Family Channel and several Discovery Networks U.S. channels.

Verizon spokeswoman Sharon Cohen-Hagar wouldn’t confirm the channel lineup or pricing, noting that the Keller rollout is a trial.
