    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!:icon_evil:

    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. :icon_evil: 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.

    Ya know its funny, VZ charges $10 a month for a navigation system... or $3 a day whatever. So when they get the droids with the google nav, they tack on the $30 data plan but advertise that you get FREE navigation.. Now its funny that they come up out with this now right before sling comes out. Wonder what they will advertise for free on the next gen phones..

    The World Cup 2010 lasts one month. For $10 is this not a good idea? They claim every single game live? I'm taking the gamble on it and hope it's worth it. I just want it for the month to watch the Cup and nothing else.

    Oh yea, if they had something like that that I wanted to watch I would do it.. but just in general they dont have a wide selection.. Hell Id probably pay $10 to get the superbowl on the phone if I had a show on superbowl sunday..

    I'm pretty excited they announced this. I was starting to wonder how I was going to see so many games while I was at work and this just made my day! I just hope it's not choppy as hell and doesn't cut out every 2 minutes.

    well last year during the stanley cup finals i had a phone that had vcast support, and i wasnt able to sit near a tv to watch the games.. so needless to say i bought the vcast package and i watched the stanley cup, it wasn't choppy and didn't cut out... of course it was on a lot smaller of a screen than my droid, so i would think it'd be a rather good experience on the droid if it is anything compared to their other phones.

    of course, it all depends if you're even in an area where you get vcast service... i dont in my area, so i wont be purchasing this.. and be careful because for the longest time i was paying that extra bit of $ for vcast and i couldnt even use it, they were kind enough to refund my money for those months i paid for it because i never actually requested it they just decided to add it to my account when i bought my wife a new phone.

    so check up on the vcast service coverage in your area before you dive head first, most any salesman/rep will let you add it to your plan regardless if its available to you
