Verizon Wireless Launches Mobile Music Video

January 31st, 2005

Verizon, the first to offer U.S. video services to mobile phones with data speeds similar to home computers, will charge $3.99 for each music video download on top of the $15 a month it plans to charge for V Cast. The service will work on the LG VZ8000 phone,, which will cost $199.99, and the a890 from Samsung Electronics Co., which will sell for $249.99 and the CDM8940 phone from UTStarcom which will cost $229.99. Full report at Reuters.

theMobileBlog.com comments: the biggest hurdle to overcome for this new service is still the PRICE. At $3.99 a piece, I can’t imagine people will be all over it and start downloading music video to their mobile phones. I know this is targeted at the early adopter crowd. But those same group also are more likely to do it yourself: buy a $29.99 software and you are on your way to convert all of your video library to be used on advanced mobile phones.

Any thoughts?
