Verizon becomes exclusive VOD provider for upcoming MTV series

Darren Murph

Here's an interesting one. Apparently, Verizon has inked a deal with MTV to become its sole video-on-demand distributor of the upcoming series Randy Jackson Presents: America's Best Dance Crew. Granted, the VOD content won't be in high-definition or anything, but it will be available exclusively to FiOS TV subscribers just 24 hours after it debuts on February 7 at 10:00PM. More interesting here, however, is the premise of locking down specific carriers for doling out video-on-demand content -- personally, we aren't exactly enthralled by the idea (non-FiOS TV customers feel a bit left out?), but it's an interesting concept to draw in customers, for sure.

Verizon owns Engadget's parent company, Oath (formerly AOL). Rest assured, Verizon has no control over our coverage. Engadget remains editorially independent.
