We’re very excited to announce the release of a lineup of live streaming video today that users can watch alongside their favorite short form videos. The lineup includes Huffington Post Live, PressTV and This Week in Tech and can be found in the ‘Live’ tab in the Squrl main menu. Bloomberg TV and Russia Today also reside in Squrl’s live video channel along with France 24, Home Shopping Network, NASA TV, The Young Turks Live Stream, Fashion TV Direct!, HMall Korea, and Al Jazeera.
The Live channel will be hand-curated to include web coverage of breaking events in news and tech. While in beta, Squrl hosted live streams of News 4 NY’s Hurricane Sandy coverage as well as ABC, CBS, and the Wall Street Journal’s streams of the 2012 presidential election. Future streams will include live concerts, sports and other events available through Pay-Per-View.
