NECN Adding Video Podcasts


New England Cable News said it will make video downloads available as “podcasts” of newscasts and such shows as New England Dream House, CEO Corner and TheChet Curtis Report.

NECN content hasn’t been made available to download and take “on the go” before, the channel said, adding that the podcasts will become available over the next month.

Other elements of a new effort called “NECN Anywhere” will include the launch of NECN Mobile, featuring headlines, sports information and news items to any Web-enabled cellular phone (no extra charges).

The regional news channel will also promote content that’s already available on-demand on Comcast Corp.’s digital-cable service. NECN is owned by Comcast and Hearst Corp.

A spokeswoman said the most popular NECN show on-demand is Sports Late Night.
