Verizon Digital Media Services has extended its relationship with Newsy, the national news network for the next generation, inking a new agreement that makes select Newsy video content available for Verizon Digital Media Services Uplynk Video Streaming service customers. Publishers seeking content to build a 24/7 live stream for their OTT apps can easily add content from the Newsy library directly into their video streams powered by Verizon Digital Media Services.
“From special investigations to original series and timely headlines, Newsy offers award-winning news coverage that is highly engaging for its millennial audience,” said Ralf Jacob, president of Verizon Digital Media Services. “In fact, Newsy’s videos received more than 1 billion views in 2016. Offering access to this same high-value content through our platform gives OTT providers and distributors even more opportunity to grow their audiences.”
