Verizon to Launch Mobile TV Service March 1

According to a coverage map on its Web site, Verizon Wireless will launch its V CAST Mobile TV service in select markets beginning March 1. However the coverage map does not show any VCAST TV availability anywhere in the nation, nor is further information available from Verizon. The carrier had previously announced its V CAST Mobile TV service, with content provided by Fox, MTV, NBC and others, would be available before the end of the first quarter. If the date on the map is accurate, a March 1 launch will beat that by a full month. The service will initially be available on just two handsets, the LG VX9400 and Samsung SCH-U620. Neither is yet available on Verizon's site. AT&T announced it will launch a mobile TV service based on MediaFLO's technology later this year and T-Mobile and Alltel are trialling the technology.

Sort of interesting that your minor-league cities like Jacksonville, Wichita, Spokane and Omaha will all have the service at launch, while your major league areas like Boston, Philly, DC/Baltimore, Chicago, Phoenix, Houston, and San Francisco are not even mentioned in future coverage.
