Verizon and CBS Reach Program Carriage Agreements

Verizon announced a long-term content agreement with CBS Corporation covering programming distribution to Verizon's television and wireless customers. Under the new agreement, Verizon has secured Mobile rights for full episodes of several top-rated CBS Entertainment and News programs, including shows from prime-time, daytime and the Number One news program, "60 Minutes."

Adding full episodes builds on the CBS content already available to Verizon Wireless V CAST subscribers. The expanded agreements also provide national video-on-demand rights for programs in both standard and high definition format, including such leading shows as "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation," "NCIS," "Survivor," and "Numb3rs," as well as video-on-demand rights for local news, also in SD and HD.
