YouTube Teams With Verizon

Publish date:

YouTube has partnered with Verizon to make some of its video available via wireless phones. The video will be available through Verizon's paid subscription service VCAST, which goes for $15 a month or $3 a day. Verizon will be the exclusive mobile outlet for YouTube clips for what the companies are calling a "limited time."

The deal marks YouTube video's first availability on cell phones, bringing content from the popular video-sharing Website to an even broader audience. It is a win for Verizon, which is seeking to attract new VCAST customers and distinguish itself from other providers of mobile video.
