NBC and Verizon have gotten even tighter than they already were
, announcing that select goodies from all nine of NBC's video channels are now available to subscribers via Verizon's VCAST multimedia service. The content seems to pretty much span the entire range, including NBC News, sports and comedy programming, Bravo, Telemundo, and others; whether this is enough of a carrot to sway many to shell out for the VCAST subscription remains to be seen, but it's a good start. The new content is available immediately -- and fortunately, none of it seems to be branded as "premium content," meaning that it'll be available as part of the basic package.
