New Verizon Hub Delivers Streaming Health Videos to Consumers

NEW YORK and BASKING RIDGE, N.J., Feb. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- HealthiNation, a leading independent producer of health and wellness videos, and Verizon Wireless, the nation's leading wireless service provider, announced today that HealthiNation's health video catalog can be viewed on the Verizon Hub. Available from Verizon Wireless, the Verizon Hub is an easy-to-use system that puts a communications command center in the home. It bridges wireline and wireless connectivity and runs on any broadband connection -- whether supplied by Verizon (FiOS Internet or DSL) or any other high-speed Internet service provider.

The Verizon Hub gives busy families information at their fingertips from an easy-to-navigate touch screen with on-demand access to an array of services and information. HealthiNation's health and wellness videos are available as a resource for the public to gain information on health, food choices and other lifestyle topics to help live healthier lives.

"We are thrilled to have HealthiNation's consumer-friendly health videos delivered to the home through the Verizon Hub," said Raj Amin, president and chief executive officer of HealthiNation. "The home phone can now be an outlet for high-quality health information in kitchens across America."

Millions of people are turning to the Internet to find health information; HealthiNation's videos are a collaboration between the company's Medical Advisors, who ensure accuracy of content, and producers, who make each program easy for people to understand.

"People want access to important information such as healthy living advice," said Mike Lanman, vice president and chief marketing officer for Verizon Wireless. "We're bringing a new sophistication and functionality to the home phone system."

Pricing and Availability

Customers need a wireless line of service with Verizon Wireless in order to purchase the communications command center since all billing for the Verizon Hub will be consolidated onto customers' Verizon Wireless bills. In addition, customers need a Verizon Digital Voice plan for the Verizon Hub, which is $34.99 a month and offers unlimited calling in the U.S., Canada, and U.S. Territories, including Puerto Rico, as well as unlimited messaging to and from Verizon Wireless phones.

The Verizon Hub is available in Verizon Wireless Communications Stores across the country for $199.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate with a two-year agreement; additional cordless handsets, which can be placed throughout the home, are available for $79.99 each. For customers who do not own a wireless router, Verizon Wireless also offers a router to work with the Verizon Hub for $69.99.
