Verizon FiOS TV subscribers now have access to NBC Sports Live Extra via My Verizon, the telco’s TV authenticated Everywhere portal for PC browsers.
NBC Sports Live Extra features live and on-demand sports programming, including the Stanley Cup Playoffs and Final, Premiere League and Major League Soccer, Formula One and Indy Car races. FiOS TV customers can log in with their user ID and password. The service is also available to authenticated customers of Cablevision, Comcast and Suddenlink.
The launch follows last month’s intro of NBCUniversal’s Golf Channel, E!, Style and Sprout on Verizon’s TV Everywhere website. Before that, My Verizon teed up access to 11 other networks in the NBCU stable (Bravo, USA, Oxygen, MSNBC, CNBC, NBC News, NBC, Syfy, mun2, Telemundo and Cozi TV) under a program carriage deal signed last fall.
With the addition of NBC Sports Live Extra, Verizon TV subs now have online access to content from 45 "featured" TV networks.
Verizon FiOS TV also offers in-home access to up more than 70 live channels on iPads, select Samsung and LG connected TVs, and Xbox 360 consoles.
