VERIZON & CLEAR CHANNEL BRING CONCERTS TO CELL PHONES

Vcast240505(CelebrityAccess MediaWire) Verizon Wireless and Clear Channel Entertainment Properties haved launched the V CAST Encore Channel exclusive to Verizon Wireless V CAST customers, broadcasting concert performances from artists in rock, pop, alternative, country, world and hip-hop. Concert performances will be broadcast in the days following select live shows for one week. Artists and songs available for viewing rotate as new performances take place around the country.

The V CAST Encore Channel is a continuation of Verizon Wireless' focus on delivering music to its customers, which began with ringtones and then evolved to Ringback Tones. The V CAST launch earlier this year offered customers full-length music videos. "Our relationship with Clear Channel Entertainment Properties brings a broad range of popular artists to our wireless multimedia service," said John Stratton, vice president and chief marketing officer for Verizon Wireless. "Clear Channel's unparalleled artist relationships will allow our V CAST customers to see and listen to concert performances from artists they love - regardless of whether their tastes are pop or alternative, country or hip- hop."

...Within days of a recent concert, each participating artist will offer a few of their songs for a limited time on the V CAST Encore Channel in the Entertainment category on Verizon Wireless V CAST-enabled wireless phones. For example, at launch V CAST customers can tune in to watch three songs from Velvet Revolver's May 18 show in Pittsburgh.
