LAS VEGAS -- Level 3 Communications, Inc. (Nasdaq: LVLT - News) today announced that it is delivering a new managed video network service (MVNS) to Fox Entertainment Group, Inc., providing direct fiber connections among 35 Fox locations, including the Fox News Headquarters in New York City.

Level 3's MVNS is a flexible managed video offering for broadcasters, enabling point-to-point and point-to-multipoint broadcast video delivery between customers' locations via Level 3's high-bandwidth fiber-optic network. The service seamlessly integrates IP and data services from Level 3's award-winning portfolio and dynamically allocates and prioritizes bandwidth between different services, giving broadcasters maximum flexibility.

Level 3 is delivering a customized MVNS network solution that allows Fox to deliver high-definition TV signals among Fox's various locations throughout the country.

"With Level 3's solution, Fox can deliver news - both live broadcast video and prerecorded content - to stations throughout the country with just a few mouse clicks. The transition from satellite to fiber-optics dramatically increases the immediacy of delivery and totally eliminates the need for producers to be concerned with availability of capacity allowing them to focus on the task at hand, reporting the news. As added benefits, fiber optic delivery will improve the quality of the picture we deliver and will give us a long-term platform for future growth," said Andrew G. Setos, Fox Group's president of engineering. "We turned to Level 3 because they understand the business of broadcast delivery and have shown over our long term relationship that they are fully capable and willing to deliver a scalable solution that will grow with our needs."
