Verizon and DIRECTV Target MDU Market

Verizon reached an agreement to market DIRECTV satellite service in multidwelling-unit buildings where it does not offer its own entertainment services. The multi-year agreement will enable Verizon to serve as the single point of contact for a bundle of offerings that includes Verizon's broadband and telephony services in addition to DIRECTV's content and services.

To further provide DIRECTV and Verizon services in a bundle throughout the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic, Verizon and MDU Communications International (MDUC), a long-time partner and provider of DIRECTV services to multidwelling units, have entered into a sales-teaming agreement. Verizon and MDUC will work together to jointly propose, provide, install, market, operate and maintain specially designed multidwelling-unit technology systems for the reception and distribution of DIRECTV's digital satellite television, and Verizon's FiOS broadband Internet, telephone calling and other telecommunications services.
