“Verizon Wireless plans to start sending clips of popular CBS shows ‘CSI,’ ‘Survivor’ and ‘Late Show with David Letterman’ to mobile phones, marking CBS’s first foray into wireless video, the companies said on Wednesday,” Reuters reports. “The clips will be available to customers of Verizon Wireless’s V Cast video service and are aimed at luring more consumers to use a high-speed wireless network it is building.”
“Networks like CBS see this trend as a way to win new viewers and give new options to existing ones. Some, like NBC, are also making agreements with Apple Computer Inc. to have whole shows or clips run on its video iPod device,” Reuters reports. “While the iPod needs to be connected to a computer for video downloads, clips are delivered to cellphones wirelessly. Rather than airing full shows, V Cast will carry shorter clips, including part of Letterman’s monologue from ‘Late Show’ and highlights from other shows. It will run preview clips of CBS series ‘CSI’ and ‘Survivor.'”
