Nexstar signs FiOS retrans


Having already signed retransmission agreements for compensation by various cable MSOs, Nexstar announced that it has signed a retrans agreement with Verizon for the FiOS TV service it is introducing in various markets to compete with cable. Terms were not revealed, but the multi-year deal covers both the analog and digital, including high definition, signals of all Nexstar stations located within FiOS TV markets. As of now, that is only one market, Ft. Wayne, IN, where FiOS will carry Nexstar's WFFT-TV (Ch. 55, Fox).
