V CAST Video App: Watch the World Cup at Work

Anyone stuck in the office today while the opening matches of the World Cup are going on?  My inbox is telling me that at least a few of you are!  So Verizon, finally launched their V CAST video app and most people’s initial impression was, “Really?  $10 per month? $3 per day? On top of our data plan?  You kidding?!?”  A few of us though, realized immediately that this thing is actually pure gold.  For $10 bucks this month, you can watch all the World Cup you want while attempting to remain productive in your cubicle. +1 right there.

And for those of you not into soccer or sports, this V CAST app also does full TV episodes, news clips, pop culture and quite a bit more.  While this isn’t ground breaking or world changing, it is a nice option to have.

The app itself is free in the Android Market.

Huge thanks to @jamerson90 for forking out the $3 and capping all of these photos!

  • slipstream20v

    I can't get it to connect to ESPN's coverage. I can get Spanish-televised coverage, but ESPN just tells me “the video cannot be played.” Any ideas?

    I got 1 month free vcast. yesterday I saw a post on Android forums. this site
    http://products.verizonwireless.com/index.aspx?…

    use to say “get a 1 free month, offer valid thru June 11″. I got it yesterday, my account now shows “1 month free VCAST” under the promotions section.

  • DeeMat

    I signe up for VCast yesterday and got it free for 30 days! Watched the entire game this morning. The sound was 2 to 3 seconds ahead of the video but it worked just fine.

  • hovercraft

    “VCast Coverage Not Available” ?!?!?!
    WTF Verizon? What a waste of money!

  • elweer

    where exactly in this app can i find the live games…..having a little trouble with that. also, has anyone been able to access their account management?

  • Mikepetty

    Thanks for listening to the email! I'm installing Froyo BB and flash to see if I can get it off of justin.tv and other sites, and if that doesn't work then I'll plink down the $10 for the month to be able to watch everything I need! It killed me that I couldn't see the Mexico vs. South Africa game.

    • Mikepetty

      Just.tv is beautiful on flash and froyo. Smooth, pretty, synch'd sound and video. Oh, this is definitely worth the upgrade!

      Go Uruguay!

  • poeddroiduser

    Can't you watch the WC matches on ESPN3.com (Not to promote ESPN)?

    • ohovercraft

      not if it's blocked at work or if you have TWC in NYC like me.

  • mkregs
  • Pete

    And how do you unsubscribe when the month is over and there's nothing decent to watch on Vcast tv?

    • http://syntakk.blogspot.com syntakk

      vzw.com or call customer service (*611 from the phone or 800-922-0204)

    • Jamerson90

      You can also unsubscribe simply from your phone. Download the My Verizon app. In there you can see and unsubscribe to services.
