Another release window has been narrowed, this time in the video-on-demand realm.
Subscribers to Verizon's FiOS VOD TV service will have access to Disney's The Cheetah Girls: One World Aug. 19, three full days before it premieres on the Disney Channel.
“Advance showings of top-quality programming is another reason why FiOS TV is the ultimate home-entertainment experience,” said Shawn Strickland, VP of video solutions for Verizon. “We know that families are looking for this kind of family entertainment, and we're delighted that our FiOS TV video-on-demand customers will get a first look at this popular film, at no additional charge …”
This isn't the first time the Disney Channel has partnered with FiOS for an early release: “Disney Channel Games” and Camp Rock also saw premieres on FiOS earlier this summer.
The Cheetah Girls: One World is the third film in a franchise following three best friends who traverse the world in search of their dream to become recording artists.
