MTV and BET want their TVN
TVN Entertainment has added two major programmers to its video-on-demand (VOD) affiliation list: MTV Networks and BET Networks.
Under the multi-year deal, TVN will supply VOD services, including content distribution and asset management, for MTVN's slate of networks, including the mother ship channel, MTV, and VH1, CMT, Nickelodeon, Logo, and Comedy Central. TVN will provide similar support for BET. Financial terms were not disclosed.
The deal also calls on TVN to supply its "TVNow" quick turnaround service so that "time sensitive" content can be prepped and sent for on-demand distribution to cable affiliates.
