Ver­i­zon TV plans draw ob­jec­tion

Los Angeles Times - - BUSINESS -

Break­ing up the ca­bleTV bun­dle won’t be easy.

ESPN is ob­ject­ing to how Ver­i­zon is giv­ing its FiOS TV cus­tomers more choice. In new plans that went into ef­fect Sun­day, Ver­i­zon made the ESPN and ESPN2 sports chan­nels op­tional, but ESPN says its con­tracts with Ver­i­zon pro­hibit the chan­nels from be­ing in a sep­a­rate sports pack­age.

Ver­i­zon Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Inc. did not re­spond to re­quests for com­ment.
