V CAST phone TV goes live

As expected, Verizon has finally gone live with streaming television broadcasts through V CAST Mobile TV. The service is only available with the Samsung SCH-U620 however, and only in 20 markets, including Chicago, Dallas, Las Vegas and Seattle. Contrary to early reports, there are actually three tiers to the service: $13 provides four channels, $15 nets eight, and $25 garners unlimited web access and video downloads. Networks providing content include NBC, CBS, Fox, MTV, Comedy Central, Nickelodeon and ESPN. Verizon should be expanding Mobile TV in the future, with the LG VX9400 likely to be the next phone to be supported. [via infoSync World]
