Verizon to use LTE Multicast during Super Bowl XLVIII
According to Engadget Verizon is now displaying their Multicast service, which allows live content to be streamed to many different Verizon devices. Traditional LTE services could have service interruptions while trying to stream where Multicast gives customers an uninterrupted video feed regardless of the number of devices using service. Verizon plans to flip the switch on Multicast in the first half of 2014 and a demo is available in New York City this week at Verizon’s Bryant Park booth running on a Galaxy Note 3. On the demo Verizon is broadcasting video at 1.8Mbps with a data feed relayed at 750Kbps and Multicast streamed content might not count against your data cap as long as you have a subscription in place.
