Verizon Wireless bets on file sharing

Publié le par Jean Arnal


Verizon multiply deals with user-generated content providers. Few days after signing a deal with YouTube to bring videos to mobile phones, it is signing a similar deal with YouTube' s rival Revver.com. Revver.com, which usually shares with users half of the ad revenue generated any time their clips are viewed, will not add ad at the end of each video clip in Verizon Wireless case, but will share the licensing revenues from the deal. Verizon has signed an exclusive deal to show Revver content on cell phones in the United States. Revver content and YouTube content will be featured under the ''entertainment'' category on V Cast, free of charge, while the VCast entertainment multimedia service costs $15 a month.
