    Verizon Bringing VCast Video to Its Android Handsets on Monday

    Philadelphia-area VZW rep Sheldon Jones tweeted away that Verizon will be bringing its VCast Video service to their Android smartphones starting Monday, June 7th. Verizon’s mobile video service has been surprisingly absent from their now dominate Droid lineup, even though it exists on practically every feature phone Verizon offers.
    The viewing experience should be stepped-up on the beefier hardware of the likes of the Motorola Droid and HTC Droid Incredible, and its hard to imagine their bright and clear screens won’t do the videos justice. Incredible owners should even be able to plug their Droid into their TV and get access to VCast shows and clips on their television sets. Pretty good if you’re into mobile video; last time I checked VCast had a decent selection to choose from.

    Usually not VCAST on demand video is 10 dollars while VCAST mobile tv (Available in a very LIMITED market) is 13-15 dollars per month. By VCAST video service I am not sure which one they are bringing to android:)

    How do we get this? Is it a download in the market? I love vcast! Its the only tv I have since we dumped cable, and I have been without it since I upgraded from my env. That was the only drawback to the droid imo.

    According to Verizon it will be available "sometime" today. Sometime being the keyword so for all we know it could be 10pm. Keep checking the market throughout the day it will be in the Verizon section of the market.

    called Verizon

    I just got off the phone with Verizon. though "unable to give specifics" they did tell me it would be in the market. They also told me i might have to restart my phone. What i had to find out the hard way is that you have to call them and ask them to put the service on your account. Apparently you can't add it manually.

    I still don't see it so if anyone was able to download please let us know.
