NEW YORK – The Afrotainment Family of Channels and Verizon announced today a broad agreement that includes the right for Verizon to distribute two multicultural black channels (Afrotainment HD and African Box Office) on Verizon Fios TV and on customers’ mobile devices through the Fios Mobile App.
 
This agreement means Verizon’s customers will now enjoy a variety of content that reflects their rich cultural diversity, such as the latest Afro-Caribbean (including Nollywood) movies in high definition (HD) without the need to purchase additional, expensive equipment.
 
"Our ever-expanding multicultural black programming lineup and library gives customers a front seat to all of the best multicultural Black entertainment available, with the convenience of watching what they want, whenever they want and where they want." said Terry Denson, vice president - FiOS TV content and programming.  “And it’s all delivered over the nation's most advanced fiber-optic network, giving our subscribers unparalleled picture quality and programming choices for all their TV viewing."
 
“As we continue to strengthen our leadership in Afro-centric home entertainment in North America with compelling black content, choice and diversity, this agreement with Verizon represents the commitment we have to respond to changing consumer behavior” said Yves Bollanga, CEO of the Afrotainment Family of channels. “The addition of Afrotainment HD and African Box Office on Verizon is a catalyst for exciting new possibilities for our company.”

Viewers can find Afrotainment HD and ABO respectively on channel 265 and channel 266.
