ONE World Sports Expands Verizon Agreement, Coverage Now Available on go90
ONE World Sports announced an expanded partnership with Verizon that brings some of the network’s popular sports programming to go90, a mobile-first social entertainment platform. The partnership also launched the network in HD on Fios TV and offers “TV Everywhere” authentication to Fios TV customers.
Users of go90 now have access to all the global sports carried on ONE World Sports, including baseball from Japan; basketball from China; hockey from Europe and Russia; cricket from England; and soccer from the UK, Europe, and Asia. Built for the next generation, go90 brings together networks, distributors, creators, audiences, and brands to deliver experiences for millennials and gen-z audiences.
ONE World Sports is now available in HD on Channel 597 for Fios TV customers, and sports fans can also access the channel from anywhere on the Watch ONE World Sports app and the Fios Mobile app using their “TV Everywhere” authentication.
“Verizon understands the appeal and impact of live sports delivered perfectly on multiple platforms,” says Randy Brown, ONE World Sports EVP, Distribution. “As our partnership with Verizon has grown, it has become apparent how much Verizon appreciates the power of global sports in connecting with an increasingly multicultural millennial audience and values our ability to provide the highest quality sports programming, wherever their viewers are.”
“Bringing live sports to go90 continues to be a focus and key content differentiator,” says Terry Denson, VP of Content Acquisition and Strategy for Verizon. “It’s important to expand the programming on go90, especially when it brings the passion and diverse fan base that ONE World Sports does.”
