Verizon has just introduced Verizon Video, a fresh video-on-demand app for smartphones. It offers current TV episodes from over 250 shows, live sports and events streaming from ABC, NBC, CBS an MTV along with Comedy Central, Animal Planet, CNBC, Disney Channel, ESPN and more. The subscription service is now available (Android Market) for the Android platform only, however.

The app requires Android 2.2 and is available on 4G smartphones along with some 3G models. It requires a data plan, and access to a 24-hour period costs $3, while a monthly pass is $10.
