ABC \"vidcasts\" news

ABC News stations have some of their TV news bulletins on the iTunes Music Store. The term "vidcasting", derived from "podcasting", describes video content made available over the internet, specifically for iPod owners, and usually through the iTunes. ABC's affiliates WABC-TV of New York and WLS-TV of Chicago are producing programs designed for the fifth-generation iPod, and WLS-TV is releasing its weekly NewsViews analysis program while taking advantage of the new features in iTunes, according to a report from journalism.co.uk. WLS-TV's online operations manager Kevin Carpenter stated that "it can currently be viewed in iTunes 4.9 and above, with quality suitable for full screen computer playback, [...] in iTunes 6.0, the WLS-TV video podcast also shows up in the new "Videos" section, the same place as ABC videos purchased from the iTunes music store." WABC-TV is vidcasting its weekly Eyewitness News Up Close show, hosted by Diana Williams, for free according to the report.
