ABC News on Monday announced it will be the exclusive distributor of BBC News on-demand broadband and wireless content in North America.

The BBC will offer approximately 40 on-demand reports per day for broadband and wireless distribution in North America. This marks the first time a U.S. news network has joined an international news organization to leverage content offerings and expands an established relationship between ABC News and the BBC that began in 1994.

“ABC News has enjoyed a long and beneficial relationship with the BBC in news gathering,” ABC News President David Westin said. “We are pleased to be expanding that relationship into the new, digital world.”
