    Has anybody tried VCAST video that was just released for our Android devices?

    i'm hesitant to throw down $10 per month before i get some opinions on it. Specifically, what content is being provided, and how is the quality/speed?

    It's $10/month, and i believe you can purchase it on the Android Market.

    haha i just posted this as well..
    I am curious as well but for $10 a month? I never had Verizon till now but i heard that back in the day...VCAST had free shows. I wonder why they are charging now?
    I might do it for a month and see how good it is.

    If you watch a lot of tv its totally worth it. Cheaper than cable. Now if I could find a way to stream the vcast tv onto my computer monitor!

    it'll look okay on the Moto Droid (i'm assuming it will be a similar resolution to the Jetflicks streams...

    but it won't look good on a screen larger than that (computer,tv, etc)
