Verizon inks viral video deal with Revver

Further evidence of the YouTubification of IPTV: Verizon inked a deal with online video portal Revver for its FiOS TV and consumer broadband customers. By the end of this quarter, FiOS subscribers will have access to the user-generated content on Revver and FiOS TV subscribers will get access to the content later this year. Revver content is already available to Verizon Wireless customers via their V Cast-enabled handsets, and some YouTube content is also available for the mobile subscribers. Maybe we can expect YouTube content for FiOS TV next?
