Verizon (VZ +1.2%) plans to launch a stand-alone service allowing customers to stream movies and television shows over the Internet, in a new challenge to Netflix (NFLX -1.9%) and traditional cable TV, Reuters reports. VZ is talking with prospective programming partners about the service, which could be launched in 2012.

    "The package of programming would be limited in its scope, said two people with knowledge of the plans."

     

    This should be concerning considering VZ is always looking for ways to charge customers more. If this plan goes through I would expect a very limited service with compounding charges for overuse; very similar to their cellular device packages.
