The recent death of analog television opened up some spectrum for mobile television and some Verizon users on the west coast now have access to VCAST Mobile television. Certain models like the LG Voyager and the Motorola Krave will now offer live and time-shifted programming to Big Red customers in San Francisco, Fresno and Sacramento in California. Some of the networks offered are CBS, CNBC, FOX, MSNBC, NBC, NBC 2Go, NBC News, NBC Sports,Nickelodeon and NickToons. The cost of the service ranges from $13 to $25 per month which includes parental controls that can prevent kids from watching adult-themed shows.
VCAST Mobile T.V. is provided by Qualcomm's FLO TV service. After analog television was ended on June 12th, it was announced
that the television service would use some of the now empty spectrum to expand to 39 new markets with the potential to reach 60 million potential new customers in cities like Boston, Miami and Houston.
