    [Review] V Cast Videos on Android

    [Review] Verizon V Cast Videos Ė DroidBlog Exclusive





    One of the biggest gripes with the Android platform is its lack of live and on-demand media. However, Android has slowly been catching up to the IPhone and other competitors. Over the past few months, MLB, NBA, Soccer, NASCAR, and NFL apps have been released that provide live (as well as on-demand) media content for the sports enthusiasts out there. Now for television show and movie access, Android has been quite limited, except for the not-so-well-known Jetflicks app. Sling Media Player and Flash 10.1 are coming to Android in the near future, but what if you canít wait, and want to watch Lost or the Office on your smartphone now? Well, Verizon is here to the rescue; on June 8th, VZW released its popular V Cast Videos service to its Android headsets. Pricing is a rather steep $10 monthly subscription, so is V Cast Videos worth it?

    No way is it worth it. I pay $30/month to find loopholes around whatever content they're charging that for.

    I have never seen actual " Live " programing on Vcast. It is just another way to get more money for the same bandwidth we are already paying for!

    V Cast app is useless & expensive!!!!!!

    V Cast is useless if you dont have 3G/EVDO coverage in your area. And also the the app does not work over your wi-fi connection not to mention the extra $10.00 fee for the service. Yeah verizon to the rescue??????

    V Cast was OK four years ago when smartphones were in their infancy - hardly anyone had one and their capabilities were way more limited than the phones of today. I used to have a V Cast "dumb phone", so I didn't pay for a data plan. $10 a month to watch videos and listen to music on my phone was a decent value. I'd compare that to the Zune service, or Rhapsody. It saved my from carrying a dedicated PMP like a Zune or IPod.

    But now, no way. Between Pandora, Last FM, Slacker radio and Youtube, and with Flash 10.1 coming in FroYo, there's really no reason to pony up an additional $10 a month for V Cast. All you need is an Android phone and the $30 unlimited data plan, and some ingenuity.
