YouTube on Verizon Phones

Cellphone provider Verizon today revealed that it will give access to YouTube videos on its phones. The feature, which launches in December, would see subscribers to the company's V CAST video service gain access to highlighted videos as well the ability to post videos directly from their phones using a five-digit code as an identifier.

YouTube notes that the deal is not exclusive and that the video hosting site, recently acquired by Google, is shifting its efforts towards Internet-connected mobile devices. Though neither company involved is willing to discuss the exact terms of the deal, a Verizon spokesman said that the provider is increasingly turning to more lucrative music and video plans as the cost of regular voice service continues to fall.
