Verizon will launch its mobile video service ‘in coming days,’ with free ad-supported shows from AOL, Vice Media and Viacom

Bloomberg Business reports that Verizon’s mobile video service called Go90 will be made widely available “in coming days.” Initially, the service will offer free shows aimed at young viewers. Go90 will only feature content from a handful of media partners, which currently include AOL and Vice Media. What’s expected to be launched is a pared-down version of Verizon’s earlier vision of a subscriber-based mobile TV service with live feeds and on-demand video from the four major broadcasting networks.
