Verizon Ready to Launch Live Mobile TV

Looks like Verizon Wireless is finally ready to try out some live television channels. According to a report from RCRWireless, Verizon is gearing up to launch “Vcast Mobile TV” in the next few days. Verizon will use Qualcomm’s MediaFLO technology to deliver true broadcast television.

According to the report, the carrier plans to offer shows from CBS, Comedy Central, Fox, MTV, NBC News, NBC Entertainment and Nickelodeon. Verizon had already announced two new handsets last month that will feature built-in TV tuners, but there’s no word yet on their actual availability.
