V CAST mobile TV gets expanded coverage Verizon's popular V CAST Mobile TV service, the service that provides television programming to capable mobile phones using MediaFLO has now seen its service upgraded to areas outside of New York City.
Current areas with service including Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, and the Bronx will all see a "service enhancement" and new areas, the greater part of Suffolk County including Lindenhurst, West Islip, Holbrook, Centereach, and from Coram east all the way to Riverhead, All of Staten Island, portions of Essex, Union, Passiac, and Morris Counties in New Jersey will finally receive the service.

V CAST Mobile TV was originally introduced in Manhattan in May 2007 and has slowly added a greater and greater service area in the time since.

"This is real broadcast television with a wide range of channels and great shows,"
said Charles Hand, president of Verizon Wireless' New York Metro region. "Our customers throughout Long Island, Northern New Jersey and in all five boroughs of New York City now can carry TV with them in the palms of their hands and watch virtually whenever they choose.

"Better yet, the service comes with parental control features so parents can monitor and restrict the programs their children view,"
Hand added.

Monthly subscriptions to the service range from $13 USD to $25 USD per month but require certain Verizon phones.
