TECHNOLOGY TIPS - VERIZON TO JUMP INTO MOBILE VIDEO

Verizon is jumping into the mobile video game with their new partner Vice Media. It's part of the new trend of consumers who are getting rid of their cable and streaming their viewing experience online.

While there are not a lot of details as yet, here is what we know. Verizon Wireless subscribers will be able to access the service. There are deals with Viacom, AwesomenessTV, ESPN, CBS Sports, Scripps Networks Interactive among others.

To get a feel for what channels you can access, you can simply look at the parent company. For example, if you're a foodie, Scripps carries Cooking Channel, Food Network, HGTV, Travel Channel. While Viacom has several channels that we all know - MTV, Nickelodeon, Comedy Central - it's unclear which channels will actually be available. A major coup is the ESPN contract. This contract will now be in competition with Dish which could prove to be exciting for sports fans.

Verizon hopes to be more competitive with Comcast's streaming service. Verzon did note that they will be streaming "Autobiographies," an original new series from Vice. According to Terry Denson, VP of Content Strategy and Acquisition, "VICE is connecting with an entire generation in a way that no one else is and Verizon will connect consumers to VICE in a way that no one else does by combining VICE's storytelling with the most compelling mobile video platform."
