BBC to stream news site to Samsung tellies

Web repurposed for IPTV

Security for virtualized datacentres

The BBC has favoured Samsung's networkable TVs for the release of its first internet-streamed news feed.

The "BBC News product for connected TVs", as only the Corporation could call it, "combines existing video and text content from BBC News Online", the BBC said, saving viewers the need to turn to their browsers. The content will be primarily textual, with clips to illustrate each story.

While this version of BBC News will debut on Samsung tellies, the Corporation promised that it will be rolled out "on a range of connected devices over time".

Many sets now sport internet connectvity for IPTV services and some, such as Sony's top-end Bravia TVs, already present BBC iPlayer on the small screen.

The broadcaster said it will also launch an international version of the product, which will be advertising supported.

The BBC News feed will be available today through the Samsung Apps Store on Samsung Smart TVs. ®
