Yesterday, we reported that European cell phones will be getting full video downloads of some of our favorite HBO shows. Today, we can tell you that Verizon Wireless has generously countered that announcement with plans to send clips from CBS shows like CSI, Survivor and Late Show with David Letterman to our mobiles. Gee, thanks. I'd much rather see a two-minute clip of Katie Holmes smiling vacantly than an episode of Six Feet Under. Not. Anyhow, the clips will only be available to customers of Verizon Wireless's V Cast video service and there really doesn't seem to be any talk about getting full shows anytime soon. Video news segments from CBS News and Entertainment Tonight are also being discussed.
