Verizon is offering V-Cast on Android based Droid for $10 a month. If you are a Video / TV or sports Buff, this one way to make sure you can watch everything, from where ever you are. It is bit pricey but I am an ardent Soccer fan and I am really looking forward to 2010 FIFA World Cup. There is no way I can watch all the matches on TV and I am really wondering if the extra $10 is worth. Guessing from all the stuff I spent on caps, jerseys and an ticket to South Africa, another $10 might not matter. According to Verizon there are more than 230 full length programs from 40 providers.
V CAST for for Droids could be found in the Verizon channel in Android Market and will run on Droid Incredible, Droid, Droid Eris, Devour from Motorola and Ally from LG. Looks pretty blue to me!
