This afternoon in Las Vegas, Verizon Wireless announced its new mobile TV service. Powered by Qualcomm's MediaFLO technology, it will be launched some time during the first quarter of this year. According to CEO Denny Strigl, V CAST TV will offer premiere live programming from television networks, including NBC, CBS, FOX, MTV and more. The service will be offered on two yet-to-be launched mobile phones, the Samsung U620 and the LG 9400. Both phones will have dedicated TV buttons and a landscape format, as well as gaming, GPS, external memory and more. Users will also be able to take advantage of a programming guide to navigate television and video-on-demand content. While timeshifting won't be part of the initial roll out, V CAST will shuffle the normal programming schedule, so evening shows will be available at times other than primetime. Initially, it will include east and west coast feeds, and will begin to add local programming over time. Of course, there will be a separate charge for the mobile TV service, but there is no word yet on how much that will be.
