Verizon Communications CEO Lowell McAdam indicated that the company may offer a mobile video service to its wireless and FiOS customers, as well as the customers of its cable company partners. McAdam said the service, which has yet to really be defined, would only become a reality if the Federal Communications Commission approves its planned $3.9 billion spectrum purchase from a slew of cable companies. The service would offer programming a la carte, giving customers more freedom to choose what they want, rather than the bundles in which cable television is generally sold. McAdam did not say how the video would be delivered to handsets (whether via 3G, 4G, or Wi-Fi), but said such a product could be ready in time for the 2012 holiday season. Verizon once offered live mobile television through Qualcomm's MediaFLO service, which is now defunct.
