Verizon is partnering with Google to bring YouTube TV to its global customers.
Customers will now be able to subscribe to YouTube TV through Verizon and get access to their favourite contents. The partnership will now also allow Verizon wireless mobility customers to stream the contents, which they like more through YouTube TV. For customers across platforms, Verizon will also be offering unique and high-value YouTube TV promotions.
“As we pave the path forward on 5G, we’ll continue to bring our customers options and access to premium content by teaming up with the best providers in the industry and leveraging our network as-a service strategy,” commented Erin McPherson, head of content strategy and acquisition at Verizon. “We were first in the world to bring commercial 5G to our customers and now another first on the content front as we offer our customers’ access to YouTube TV on whatever platform they choose.”
Heather Rivera, global head of product partnerships at YouTube, added: “With this partnership, we're making it simple and seamless for Verizon's customers to sign up to enjoy YouTube TV on-the-go on their mobile phones or tablets or at home on their big screen devices."
Additionally, Nokia with its patent-pending 5G virtual testing environment is trying to make 5G deployments more cost-efficient as well as quick. The firm is working along with operators to simulate massive MIMO antenna beamforming performance by merging physical testing with a leading edge virtual environment. In the 5G test lab, which is located in Oulu, Finland, Nokia combines a unique physical OTA test environment with VR to test and verify the optimal site locations of the antennas for operators.
