NFL Network, TVN huddle on VOD
The NFL Network has tapped TVN Entertainment as its primary video-on-demand (VOD) distribution partner. Financial terms were not disclosed.
NFL Network, already available in more than 44 million homes, will use TVN's technology to deliver VOD fare, including extended highlights of games and programs from the NFL Films library, to cable affiliates.
NFL Network will also use TVN's "rapid turnaround" service, dubbed "TVNow," to quickly encode programming and manage metadata for VOD distribution to cable operators.
