Yahoo! News added video from BBC News Friday through a new agreement with ABC News.
Some 30 BBC News video clips featuring top stories, breaking news, U.S. and world news, sports, business, politics, technology, health and entertainment will be available to Yahoo! News users daily, the company said.
ABC News is the exclusive representative for the British Broadcasting Corp. for distribution of BBC News on-demand broadband and wireless content in North America.
“The demand for BBC content in the United States is growing all the time, and we believe our expansion on new digital platforms is critically important to helping us meet that demand,” BBC global-news division director Richard Sambrook said in a prepared statement.
Yahoo! Media Group head of news and information Scott Moore added, “The BBC has established itself as an unparalleled global newsgathering organization, and its content will be a tremendous complement to the world-class news already available on our site. The BBC has a cool factor with younger audiences, a natural fit for Yahoo! News users who are generally younger than audiences at other news organizations.”
