Verizon Wireless makes deal with YouTube

Posted on Wednesday, November 29 2006 @ 01:42:42 CET by


Verizon Wireless will charge its users $15 per month to watch YouTube videos through Verizon's V Cast multimedia hub:
The videos you'll actually be able to see are ones that have been "selected and approved by the companies...that [have] the broadest appeal and highest entertainment value." Um, isn't that the very definition of censorship? And what are the odds that some of the selected videos you'll see are ads for soap?

I would think that the massive popularity of YouTube can be attributed to videos that might not exactly meets Verizon's "editorial and taste" guidelines. Translation: don't expect too many video saying, "Verizon Sucks!"

Both Google, the new owners of YouTube, and Verizon are just thrilled to be offering us an anemic version of the popular video sharing Web site. But fear not, non-Verizon Wireless users: YouTube will only remain exclusive to Verizon for a "limited period of time."
Just like the author from Gizmodo I don't expect this will become very popular. Sheesh who wants to pay 15 bucks a month for watching a bunch of pre-selected movies on a small cell phone display.
