V-Cast Video was a good service, but it needed a boost in order to gain some major popularity. Verizon has not only decided to expand its TV Show repertoire to 250 shows, but to rename the whole shebang: Verizon Video.
You may have noticed this update roll out on your device lately, replacing good ol’ V-Cast Video. This update is quite the improvement, as it brings shows from TV networks like ABC, NBC, CBS, Comedy Central, ESPN and many others. The user also gets a fair share of sports, with access to NFL’s Red Zone, NBC’s Sunday Night Football and the NFL Netowork.
All this comes with a price tag of $10 a month or $3 for one day (if you want to try it). The price isn’t bad at all if you are a constant user, but other services (like Netflix) offer similar/better services for about the same price. If you’re really into TV shows and sports, though, this app will definitely make your day much more enjoyable.
If the update hasn’t rolled out to your device, simply grab it from the Android Market (for select devices). What do you guys think? Is it a big improvement? Would you rather use Netflix? Maybe both? Let us know what you think.
