Verizon Wireless today announced the addition of a new subscription movie service to its V CAST Video offering. The service, which is provided by Crackle and offers content from Sony Pictures, costs $6 per month on top of the $10 V CAST Video subscription and necessary data package. According to Verizon, Crackle's library includes action, comedy, drama, and science fiction movies. There will be 19 movies available at launch, with two new movies added to the library each month. It is available to all V CAST-capable phones, and select BlackBerries and select Android devices.

iPhone can get Netflix

I have to admit that the iPhone has upper hand on this. You can stream Netflix video, bigger bang for your buck. Verizon always has to have their name on everything. Wonder if the iPhone will be crippled when/if it hits Verizon?

This is kind of stupid

$10 for vcast, and another $6 just for this service? And data to boot? (vcast doesn't require data last I checked)

I can understand (sort of) Sony wanting to do their own thing, especially since this will be movie content. But if they did that, they should've released it as a separate app, not as something tied to vcast.
As mobiler-centric as I am, I'm not into watching 90-120m+ long movies on a smartphone.
vcast VIDEOS has always required a subscription its vcast MUSIC that doesn't. So it seems that this service is a data service + video service + additional movie service so it makes sense that those features would be needed.
