Verizon to launch its Netflix competitor soon? Domain names may be sign

Netflix Instant movies

Back in December there was talk of Verizon planning its own Netflix competitor and even talk of the company making a very “serious bid” to acquire Netflix. 

While nothing is official yet on either front, Verizon did shell out a few bucks this week to buy up some online real estate related to its rumored Netflix competitor like VerizonInstantMovies.com and VerizonInstantMusic.com.

In total, the company registered four new domain names on January 12, through the internet brand protection company MarkMonitor.

The registrations include:

http://whois.domaintools.com/verizoninstantmovies.com 
http://whois.domaintools.com/verizoninstantmusic.com 
http://whois.domaintools.com/verizoninstanttv.com 
http://whois.domaintools.com/verizoninstantvideo.com 

As of today, none of the domain names resolve to a web page.
