The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Verizon is close to a deal with YouTube to distribute web videos via the carrier's wireless and terrestrial TV networks. The proposed deal would involve the top 50-100 YouTube videos at any time. The videos would be available via Verizon Wireless' VCast video service for cell phones, and also through Verizon's FiOS TV service. The service would initially only allow viewing videos, although the plan calls for Verizon Wireless users to be able to shoot and upload video to YouTube by the end of the year.

YouTube’s mobile strategy remains unclear, but the company has options. The company could do a carrier deal and work within the carrier deck or go straight to consumer. The company has a relationship with Cingular, though it’s strictly marketing for now, but carriers are way more squeamish about copyright issues than YouTube’s recent acquirer Google.

You Tube ALREADY has mobile upload services...

... and ANY carrier's phone can use it. Sucks if they strip it away to give Verizon exlusivity.

That should had read: "If they give Vzw exclusivity so THEY can strip it away"

Cingular already offer Youtube clips!

Any Cingular customers with a 3G headset can go to CV in Media net and watch quiet a few clips from the Youtube website called Youtube Underground right on their headsets.
So,it's nothing new.

When good things go terribly wrong.

The alliance of YouTube with the wireless industry was bad enough. If that was not enough they had to choose the carrier that will strip all the good stuff and leave nothing but rubbish to their users.

R.I.P. YouTube. Crying or Very sad
Eraser, you're just jealous that Cingular didn't come up with this idea.
It's okay man, we understand you're upset. Cool Laughing
