ABCNEWS.com (abcnews.go.com) is expanding
its $4.95-per-month video-news series to a full 24-hour feed.
The Web site has carried news stories and rebroadcasts of World News
Tonight with Peter Jennings and Nightline for several years. That
core package of subscription content is also available on RealNetworks Inc.'s
"SuperPass" subscription service.
But with so much video coming in to ABC News with the impending war, the
network decided to go a full 24 hours with the Internet's first all-news
The subscription site will feature Washington briefings (State Department,
White House) in their entirety, along with traditional news clips, special
packages and on-air reruns.
Elsewhere at The Walt Disney Co., the company has launched a broadband
version of its kids Disney Blast site (disney.go.com/preview/blast/special_offer/preview.html).
