CNN Launches Newswatch Service

CNN has launched a subscription-based news ticker/alert service called Newswatch. The heart of the service is the “SmartScreen”, a full-screen news interface with photos, headlines, personalized alerts, stock charts and other user-selected information. News is gathered from CNN, the leading news wires and more than 2,000 regional, national and world news sites. The information is received through full-screen visuals, breaking news alerts and a scrolling ticker across the top of the screen, and can be routed to the user’s desktop, e-mail or mobile device. The service is powered by Infogate, which has also developed similar services for USA Today.

The service costs $6.95 per month or $59.95 a year. This service is different from the CNN NewsPass service, which gives access to CNN video clips.
