Verizon Wireless customers in North America can now get commercial-free full-length episodes of “The Late Show with David Letterman” and “The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson” via the operators V CAST portal, thanks to a deal inked with US broadcast network CBS.
“While we continue to provide short clips of our shows, we’re seeing a growing demand for the availability of full length, network quality shows on video on demand mobile video,” said Cyriac Roeding, executive vice president, CBS Mobile, CBS Interactive. “The ‘Late Show with David Letterman’ and the ‘Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson’ have become some of the most demanded shows in mobile and on the internet so it only makes sense that we fulfill the consumer request and help grow the popularity of these franchises. We are committed to innovation and are happy to help launch Verizon Wireless’ first full-length video on demand programming on its V CAST service.”
The V CAST service is available to Verizon customers on an unlimited monthly basis for $15/month, or on a daily pay-as-you-go on demand cost of $3 for 24 hours usage. Data charges are included, but application download fees apply for some other V CAST services, such as 3D games and premium video.
