Verizon To Offer You Tube Videos

Marketwatch reports: “Verizon Wireless will become the first mobile-phone company to allow customers to watch videos from the popular Web site YouTube on their handsets beginning next month, the two companies announced Tuesday. Under the deal, Verizon customers who sign up for the company’s $15-a-month V Cast wireless Internet service would be able to access “a sampling of the most popular videos” from YouTube. The service would be available exclusively to Verizon customers for “a limited time,” though they would need to upgrade their phones to see the videos.”

This sounds almost cool. For it to be truly cool it would have to be more than a “sampling” of videos. Oh well, the more You Tube the better, right? —MEGHANN MARCO
