BreakingNews has announced the launch of their official app for the internet connection television sets and Blu-ray players.
The app is currently compatible with Samsung devices and is available as a free download from the Samsung TV Apps Store.
The company spoke about the features of the app:
Once you’ve downloaded and launched the app, you’re ready to go. When a story breaks, a ticker will appear along the bottom of the screen for a few seconds, scrolling the breaking story. Then it will disappear. And it works across any live TV channel you’re watching.
If you prefer a constant ticker, you can set the app to do that, too. Or if you prefer a BreakingNews “screen saver” of sorts for your TV set, it will vertically scroll the latest breaking stories in a full-screen display (this is the only mode available for Samsung Blu-ray players.) If you’d like, you can also browse the latest stories in the app by topic.
