Wow Vodafone users are going to be spoilt for choice with Vodafone?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s new deal with YouTube. First it was an eBay deal then it was MySpace and now its YouTube.
In the third content deal in as many days, Vodafone Group announced a service that will allow its mobile customers to view and upload videos to YouTube.
The deals point to a growing interest from online content providers to offer their services to mobile customers as well as continued efforts by operators to drive usage of their wireless data networks.
The service will launch in the UK to start with but Vodafone plans to branch out into other European countries in the future.
YouTube has a similar offering in the U.S. where customers of Cingular Wireless LLC, Sprint Nextel Corp., T-Mobile USA Inc. and Verizon Wireless Inc. can all upload videos from their phones.
All three services will be available within Vodafone Live, the operator’s mobile portal.
