During the recent Microsoft talks at CES, Craig Davison revealed that a Newscorp app would be bringing more news and additional content to Xbox LIVE Dashboards at some point this year. The Murdoch led corporation will be providing content from confirmed participants The Wall Street Journal, Fox News, and IGN in a free-to-download app with more content providers to be confirmed in the future.
As it stands it's being reported
that there will be a fair amount of free to watch live TV/report segments from sources such as the official Wall Street Journal website, Dow Jones Newswires, Barron's, MarketWatch, SmartMoney and technology blog AllThingsD.com. On top of that users will be able to access live shows, news updates and coverage of special events, with archived 'on demand' content accessible via the digital library.
