Verizon Fills Keller Lineup Card

Verizon hasn’t released the programming roster for its video trial in Keller, Texas. But on Friday, BroadbandReports.com posted two Verizon documents listing the channel lineup and pricing.

The documents detailed a 160-channel expanded-basic package that will cost $39.95 per month. A movie tier containing Showtime Networks Inc. and Starz Entertainment Group channels costs an additional $9.95 monthly.

Premium channels Home Box Office, Cinemax and Playboy TV cost an additional $14.95 per month, or subscribers can opt to pay $24.95 for both HBO and Cinemax.

Verizon will evidently group networks by genre, similar to how DirecTV Inc. and EchoStar Communications Corp. package their satellite services.

Verizon is also offering a broad free video-on-demand library, including programming from ESPN, ESPNU, ESPN Deportes, Fox Sports Español, Fox Soccer Channel, Speed Channel, Fuel, ABC News, Cable News Network, SoapNet, Home & Garden Television, Do It Yourself, Fine Living, A&E Network, ABC Family, Black Family Channel and several Discovery Networks U.S. channels.

Verizon spokeswoman Sharon Cohen-Hagar wouldn’t confirm the channel lineup or pricing, noting that the Keller rollout is a trial.
