CBS Sports Network added to Verizon FiOS Custom TV Sports package

Verizon launched their Custom TV service just about a week ago with service that starts at $54.99 for a base of 35 channels and includes two channel packs. Today, the company announced the addition of CBS Sports Network to the Sports Channel Pack, that also includes Fox Sports 1 and NBC Sports Network.

The 24-hour channel broadcasts about 600 live events and 3,000 hours of live programming per year, as well as studio shows, documentaries, and shoulder programming around events such as the Super Bowl, the Masters, and  the PGA Championship.

Additional channel packs, such as News & Info, Entertainment, and Pop Culture can be added for an additional $10 per month each.

“While consumer choice is at the heart of our Custom TV product, when customers make their choices we want them to have the best experience and the most robust package possible,” said Terry Denson vice president, content acquisition and strategy at Verizon

Verizon’s new FiOS Custom TV service was not exactly welcomed by ESPN, who claims that separating ESPN and ESPN2 violates the distribution agreement with Verizon. However, consumers seem to be interested in Verizon’s “skinny bundling” of channels, which can cost a lot less than traditional channels packages.
