Reuters TV App Will Help You Stay on Top of the News, on the Go

You need to know what's going on in the world, but you've rarely got time to sit down for the nightly news, let alone read through a newspaper. Sure, you can scan through social media or quickly browse a website, but that's a pretty haphazard way to stay informed of major news events.

That's where the Reuters TV app comes in. (Disclosure: Reuters is FindLaw's sister company.) Reuters TV allows you to get high-quality, authentic journalism no matter how busy you are, by creating a customized news video stream that adapts depending on how much time you have to spare.

News for Busy People

So much of today's news is distributed based on older models of media -- the 30-minute news broadcast, for example, or the international section of a newspaper. It's your job to sift through those sources, working them into your schedule.

Reuters TV reverses that dynamic. You don't adjust your schedule to catch the news, the news adjusts for you.

Tell the app how much time you have to spend on the news and it will put together a specially-made broadcast, just for you. You don't have to worry about commercials or unnecessary commentary, and if you're interested in a video, you can skip it with the push of a button. For example, if you want to spend 20 minutes getting the news, Reuters TV will put together a broadcast that covers everything from the emperor of Japan, to A. Rod's retirement from the Yankees, to crackdowns in Turkey. If you've only got five minutes to spare today, the broadcast is pared down to just the basics. It's like being able to schedule a personalized version of the daily news.

Fast, but Not Superficial

Worried that a five or ten minute stream isn't enough to really get deep into the day's news? Reuters TV also highlights featured stories, bringing together top reporting on important topics. You can watch 8 stories on "inside secretive North Korea," for example, or 24 on the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.

And the app allows you to access the news even when you don't have service. You can download your personalized broadcasts for later viewing, and even set the app to download broadcasts automatically. So whether you've got an hour to delve into the day's news or just a few minutes to catch up on current events, this could be the app for you.
