Howard Stern remains In Demand.
The shock jock, who last month re-upped his contract with Sirius XM Radio for five more years, has renewed his agreement to continue the Howard TV On Demand subscription video on demand television channel.
According to the pact between Howard Stern Productions and In Demand, financial terms of which were not disclosed, Howard TV will continue to offer over 40 hours of uncensored high-definition programming each month, with unlimited access to the video versions of Stern's Sirius XM daily radio show, selections from the extensive television archives (including the uncensored versions of his E! shows), original programming and behind-the-scenes content.
The parties' previous SVOD contract was set to expire at the end of 2010.
"After nearly 30 years in terrestrial and satellite radio, Howard Stern has secured his spot as a ‘must listen' for legions of fans," said Bob Benya, In Demand president & CEO in announcing the new deal. "We are thrilled that he will be continuing his iconic show, and proud to be able to deliver Howard TV to cable audiences around North America who want to see Howard Stern in action."
"The production staff at Howard TV looks forward to continuing to entertain Howard Stern fans with our one-of-a-kind programming via original series, specials and the exclusive daily shows from Howard's radio studio," noted Howard TV executive producer Doug Goodstein. "Our commitment is to give fans an in-depth viewpoint of the world of Howard Stern unlike anything on television."
