YouTube and Verizon love you long time

And, so it begins. First, there were rumblings on the internet. And then we caught word of “advanced talks.” Now, their relationship is finally official and out in the open: YouTube has inked a deal with Verizon Wireless. The mobile YouTube service is set to launch next month.

As this is an exclusive agreement, the only way you’ll enjoy YouTube on your Verizon phone is via V CAST, which will run you an extra $15 a month. If you’re among the 10% of Verizon users who rock a V CAST capable phone — like the recently announced Sidekick-killing LG enV — then I guess you’re in luck.

One big word of warning here though: Seems that whole “exclusive” bit won’t last very long. The other service providers — T-Mobile, Sprint, Cingular, etc. — are itching for some YouTube loving too, because she’s become the hottest piece of, well, you know the rest.
