    Verizon Wireless launches V CAST Mobile TV today

    RENO, Nev., Nov. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Wait times at the airport, doctors' offices and restaurants just got a little bit more interesting for Verizon Wireless customers in Reno, Nevada, who can now watch broadcast-quality television on select TV-enabled handsets.

    Verizon Wireless V CAST Mobile TV service allows wireless customers to catch sporting events, breaking news and their favorite network TV shows -- not to mention make phone calls -- while on-the-go.

    V CAST Mobile TV offers programming for TV viewers of all ages and interests including the "Late Show with David Letterman," "24" and "Dora the Explorer." The service offers full length shows and mobile television content from CBS Mobile, Comedy Central, ESPN Mobile TV, Fox Mobile, MTV, NBC 2GO, NBC News2GO, and Nickelodeon. The service also comes with parental control features, so parents can monitor and restrict the programs their children view.

    "This goes way beyond any other video offerings in the wireless market right now," said Rich Garwood, region president for Verizon Wireless. "No buffering. No lag time. It's like flipping on your television at home. You absolutely have to see it to believe the quality of this service."

    V CAST Mobile TV from Verizon Wireless is powered on the FLO TV(TM) service from MediaFLO USA Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated. Because MediaFLO USA operates a dedicated multicast network that delivers programming in a linear format, Verizon Wireless can offer customers the latest in mobile entertainment without impacting its award- winning voice and data services.

    Monthly access packages range from $13 to $25 per month. Handsets enabled for V CAST Mobile TV include the LG VX9400, the Voyager(TM) by LG, MOTORIZR(TM) Z6tv, and Samsung SCH-u620. For more information, visit the dedicated V CAST Mobile TV Web site at www.verizonwireless.com/mobiletv.

    Reno customers can get hands-on demonstrations at the following Verizon Wireless Communications Store:
