Verizon signs deal with Revver Verizon has announced a deal with video sharing site Revver, which shares revenues with users who submit their own content to the site. Videos will be made available through Verizon's broadband service by the end of March, and then on FiOS TV by the end of the year. Revver signed a similar deal with Verizon's sister company, Verizon Wireless in November last year.
"Backed by Verizon's technology, we'll make it easy for our FiOS TV and broadband customers to enjoy the best of the cutting-edge videos that Revver is known for," Verizon video solutions senior vice president Marilyn O'Connell said. "This is just another way that FiOS continues to distinguish itself from old-fashioned TV."

Users of Revver would have to choose to allow their content to be shown on Verizon's services. The revenue will be split 50/50 between the content creator and Revver. "This initiative will help us further support our creators by bringing their content to a whole new TV audience," Revver CEO and founder Steven Starr stated. "It's a fantastic opportunity for our company and the growing Revver community."
