Verizon, YouTube in Talks
Nov 7, 2006, 9:55 AM by (staff)
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.
