LSN Inks Deal With Verizon Wireless

Verizon Wireless customers in New York, Los Angeles, Atlanta and nearly 50 markets across the country with V CAST-enabled phones now have access to local news, weather and sports video following a partnership with Local Solutions Network. The V CAST enabled handsets can receive live weather and sports video stories from local television station affiliates and have full access to video content on-demand, including news, weather and sports updates, clips from popular TV programs, music videos, movie trailers, 3D games and more. It is a great product however will consumers be willing to spend an additional $3 for one time use (24hrs) or part with an extra $15 per month for the subscription? This business model will have to change to an ad revenue supported/no cost to the viewer before we see any significant viewer base. Link: New Release and 50 market launch list

  1. What do you think of Pivot (Sprint and TimeWarner's project)...I actually like it, just feel that there will soon be too many options for consumers with-in the price range; and the cell providers that are truly branching out into new platforms or new to them at least will win out in the long haul...i.e IPTV or the iPhone if cheaper models are produced..
