Hands-On with the Verizon Video app for Android

0. phoneArena posted on 31 Aug 2011, 15:25

We've been testing the Verizon Video app over the past few days on our HTC ThunderBolt in a 4G area, though it will work on 3G as well. The app takes about 4 seconds to load and has a nice layout to it. The main screen will show videos in three categories - Featured, Trending, and Newest.

Should be what? Pointless?

You can already use the regular internet to watch a much wider variety of content and you can do it over wifi when available to conserve your data usage. Even if the app is more convenient, why would we want to pay $10 a month for the privilege of having only a few hours of use or having to pay even more for a higher tier data plan?

This should be FREE for anyone with a tiered data plan because it would promote people to upgrade to a higher tier or pay lots of overage fees.

This only makes sense if you have an unlimited plan.

not a problem to me with my unlimited data. LTE service is faster than a lot of cheaper internet plans anyway.
