Thanks to an agreement that was just announced, Verizon Wireless’ V CAST subscribers will soon be able to view a sampling of the most popular YouTube videos.
YouTube is one of the most widely used video sharing sites on the Web, and huge numbers of clips are available. These cover everything from someone’s baby taking its first steps to what happens when Mentos are put in a bottle of Diet Coke.
Verizon users will also will be able to record and upload videos to YouTube with their mobile phones.
Pricing and Requirements
Users will be able to access video clips on any one of the V CAST-enabled phones.
To get V CAST, Verizon customers need to purchase a V CAST VPak subscription for $15 monthly access, or $3 daily access, added to their Verizon Wireless calling plan. The subscription includes unlimited basic video. There are no airtime charges to stream or watch V CAST content.
It is not yet known when this new service will be available to Verizon users.

Those who use a Treo 700p or 700w can already view YouTube videos without a subscription to V CAST as long as they have Kinoma Player 4 EX. This application can stream video directly off the YouTube and Google Video web sites.
Kinoma Player 4 EX can be purchased from the Kinoma web site for $24.99.
