Latest Verizon FiOS Promotions Include High School Sports In Lineup
Sports fans in New Jersey will soon have something new in their FiOS lineup: high school sports. This latest in Verizon FiOS promotions comes as a result of a partnership between the television and internet giant at the New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association. A wide range of high school content will be available, including a whopping 36 games per year that cover soccer, lacrosse and basketball, to name a few. Programming will be available on the FiOS 1 channel. The agreement between Verizon and the NJSIAA runs through 2015, and includes an annual sponsorship by the company. Verizon has the exclusive rights to broadcast all of the state’s playoff and championship games during the four-year period, and its deal with the association hopes to illustrate the importance of making local content available to viewers.
