Verizon announces new V Cast channels

A host of new channels, including full-length programs, are available with Verizon Wireless' V Cast service.

As the CTIA Fall 2008 show opened, Verizon Wireless announced new channels for its V Cast streaming-video service, some of which will feature full-length programming.

The new channels include Scooby Doo & Friends, DC Comics, Relix, G4 Mobile, HGTV, The Food Network, The WB, ES Musica and Rock On: Altitude from GoTV, Comedy Time Latino, TLC, Animal Planet, Planet Green, and Discovery Kids.

While the above channels will feature mostly short clips, full-length programming will be available from shows like Comic View: One Mic Stand and Hell Date from BET and Score Center and MMA Live from ESPN. You'll also get complete shows from MTV, Nickelodeon, VH1, CMT, Logo, MTV Tr3s, NBC, Telemundo, USA Network, and the Sci-Fi Channel.

Rounding out the new offerings are SayHeyHey.com, a free dating Web site, and a new music show from 60Frames called Tuned in.

The new content is available on all V Cast-equipped phones and is included as part of Verizon's standard data charges.
