YouTube Content on Verizon Mobile Handsets

vcast.jpgVerizon Wireless and YouTube have today announced a deal where Verizon will offer select videos from YouTube to customers over its V CAST service.

While financial specifics of the deal have not been disclosed, customers will be able to access the videos starting in December this year.

The deal is likely Verizon’s way of bringing advanced mobile services like video to the masses, as such services have so far only received a lukewarm reception in the US.

In addition to viewing YouTube content, users will be able to more easily post video from their handset to YouTube by using a five-digit short-code. Previously, users had to send content to a personalized email address provided by YouTube. YouTube viewing will be included in Verizon’s V CAST subscription, no additional fees will be applied.
