Jul 28, 2005  •  Post A Comment

ABC News will be contributing more content, packages and video stream options to America Online under a renewed and expanded deal the partners announced Thursday.

Among the highlights of the new deal are simultaneous live raw broadband streams of breaking news and special events as well as audio feeds that accommodate narrowband users; more interactive packages that work with AOL News features such as real-time polls, blogs and chat-room debate; and “ABC/AOL Search Watch,” which will highlight most-searched subjects and links to popular search lists. This is in addition to the access AOL subscribers already have to the digital news service ABC News Now.
