NetworkGlobal releases mobile streaming app
The Detroit News and Detroit Free Press have both announced the launch of mobile applications for the iPhone and iPod touch, while Network Global has launched a new app that provides access to the NGB.tv video library
The Detroit News and Detroit Free Press have both released new applications for the iPhone and iPod touch, each produced in collaboration with DoApp. The free apps, which are sponsored by the Southeast Michigan Ford Dealers, provide users with the latest news, sports, business, and entertainment headlines. Through the use of GPS, each application can also allow users to find localized weather and traffic reports. In addition, both apps can be found in the Android Market, while the BlackBerry-compatible versions are expected to become available within the next week.
NetworkGlobal Companies, a producer of online videos, has announced that it will bring its NGB.tv library to the iPhone and iPad. The free NetworkGlobal News app allows mobile users to stream pre-recorded news, political, and social issues videos that have been uploaded by independent contributors from around the world. Currently, the company hosts millions of online streams every month, with hopes of raising that number even higher following the addition of a mobile viewing platform. To celebrate the launch of its new app, the company will produce the first official live mobile video stream of the upcoming 2010 UN General Assembly.
