Howard Stern Stays With In Demand

Howard Stern is still 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,” In Demand CEO Bob Benya said 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.”

Howard TV executive producer Doug Goodstein said:
“The production staff at Howard TV looks forward to continuing
to entertain Howard Stern fans with our one-ofa-
kind programming via original series, specials and the
exclusive daily shows from Howard’s radio studio. Our
commitment is to give fans an in-depth viewpoint of the
world of Howard Stern unlike anything on television.”
