VCAST video now available on Verizon branded Android phones
Yesterday we reported that Verizon's Android users would gain access to the carrier's VCAST video service on Monday, and it is now official. Verizon has confirmed that the service, which provides a wide variety of news, sports and entertainment, is now available from the Verizon channel in the Android Market. For a $10 monthly charge, you can receive more than 230 full length programs from 40 content providers. Big Red has also just struck a deal with AETN which allows the operator to offer programming from A&E, Lifetime and The History Channel along with Spanish language content from V-me. World Cup fans will be able to view all 64 Spanish language broadcasts of the event right on the screen of their Android phone. Throughout the year, VCAST offers hundreds of live sporting events including college football and basketball games along with NHL hockey contests. The list of enabled devices includes the Motorola DROID, HTC DROID ERIS, Motorola DEVOUR, HTC Droid Incredible and the LG Ally.

I don't see it on Android Market. Why are companies promising things that don't happen. People guilty of this should be sent home for the day with no pay! If you go as far as announcing to the world that you'll offer something it better darn happen. The one announcing it or the guy throwing the switch to make it happen better be on the same page.
