Verizon Wireless has begun sending short clips of CBS TV shows "CSI", "Survivor" and "Late Show with David Letterman" to its VCAST mobile phones.
VCAST subscribers now receive video news segments from both CBS News and Paramount TV’s "Entertainment Tonight" — produced specifically for mobile phones —as well as preview clips of many of CBS’s top shows. News segments include breaking stories, as well as features from broadcasts such as "CBS Evening News" and "The Early Show."
The new service is also distributing comedy clips from David Letterman’s monologue and Top 10 lists as well as highlights from "The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson."
VCAST runs on Verizon Wireless’ Evolution-Data Optimized (EV-DO) network. The VCAST coverage area, which mirrors the Verizon Wireless EV-DO network, is available to more than 140 million Americans in 171 major metropolitan markets and is expanding coast to coast.
