Verizon to offer “Civil Rights” on Demand?

The studio will consist of a library of on-demand public interest and civil rights content. That will be in addition to the public, educational and goverment channels FiOS already provides per its franchise agreements with local communities.

Among the groups that will get to put content on the channel are the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights, the National Hispanic Media Coalition, American Association for People with Disabilities, Black Leadership Forum, and U.S. Distance Learning Association.

TVN, Verizon’s VOD provider, will supply encoding and distribution for the content, which won’t cost the civil rights groups anything.
