ABCNews.com Launches 24-Hours Online News Channel: And I thought CNN.com or MSNBC.com would beat them to it…ABCNews.com plans to launch a 24-hour news service on Wednesday that will be available only to broadband Internet users. The service, to be called ABC News Live, initially will be more like C-Span than CNN, mixing live feeds of breaking news with some anchored coverage, news summaries every half hour and rebroadcasts of programs

Initially it will be available to subscribers to the existing ABC News On Demand broadband service, which lets users who pay $4.95 a month view taped ABC News clips and programs. The channel will also be carried on RealNetworks RealOne SuperPass service, which includes ABC News On Demand as part of a broader package of entertainment and information video at a cost of $9.95 a month.
