This week, Verizon announced that it was adding V CAST Video service for its Android cell phones. This service offers on-demand content including episodes of popular television shows from major networks including NBC, ABC, CBS, Fox, A&E, Lifetime, and more. There are 81 channels of programming from which to choose. The service also includes live coverage of major league sporting events. The connection time does not count against your voice minutes or data download allocation.
Verizon charges $10 a month for the service, on top of the the required monthly data service plan. You can also get access for a day at a time for $3 per day, which might be handy if you get stranded in an airport while traveling.
