Posted on 29-Nov-2006 10:19 | Filed under: News


YouTube will make its video entertainment service available to people on mobile devices from early December. In its first mobile distribution agreement, YouTube will enable Verizon Wireless V CAST consumers to access a selection of YouTube videos from their mobile phones exclusively for a limited time.

YouTube, a Google company, will deliver a sampling of the most popular videos to Verizon Wireless� V CAST subscribers in the United States.

The company will provide Verizon Wireless� V CAST customers with a variety of videos, enabling users to access video clips on any one of the Verizon Wireless V CAST-enabled handsets, including the Chocolate (LG VX8500) and MOTOKRZR K1m. Video enthusiasts also will be able to record and share their favorite moments with their mobile phones.

The V CAST service is available to Verizon Wireless customers who purchase a V CAST VPak subscription for U$15.00 monthly access, or US$3.00 daily access. The subscription service includes unlimited basic video, but application download fees apply for 3D games and premium video. There are no airtime charges to stream or watch V CAST content.
