    Part of this is to compete against ABC and CBS for streaming news outlets.

    NBC News plans to launch a streaming service called NBC News Now in early May.

    Speaking at the South by Southwest conference in Austin Sunday, NBC News President Noah Oppenheim said the free, ad supported streaming service will launch with eight hours of programming, including live updates at the top of every hours.


    CBS News and ABC News have also launched live news streaming services, Those news operations do not have a 24-hour cable news network like NBCU’s MSNBC.

    News tends to skew older by streaming news has proved attractive to some younger viewers, although Oppenheim said NBC News Now would not be limited to appealing to young people.

    An Update NBC has Launched their News Outlet

    NBC is serving up the video news for which it is known – but doesn’t mind if you don’t get it through your TV.

    NBC hopes a rising generation of news junkies will turn to its new streaming-video service for the long and short of it all. The new offering, NBC News Now, provides minutes-long news updates called “Briefly’s” as well as in-depth reportage that expands some of the stories TV viewers might see on “Today” or “NBC Nightly News.”

    But there’s no morning show, no Sunday public-affairs program and no evening news.

    “We want to be the premiere place for viewers who are news junkies – news savvy, digitally savvy, but may not be watching on traditional platforms or have access to cable service,” says Rashida Jones, senior vice president of specials for NBC News and MSNBC, and the executive who is overseeing the new effort. These viewers, she says in an interview, don’t tune in to watch a specific show at a certain time. But they want to keep up on the latest news stories and even spend time watching longer videos about important topics
