MediaScrape's technology and content distributed to PBS's Channel 13
(New York) for launch of global program "WorldFocus"
NEW YORK, Oct. 7 /CNW Telbec/ - MediaScrape, recently named by Red
Herring as Canada's Most Innovative Tech Company, has officially executed its
first HD television deal with PBS's Channel 13 (New York).
MediaScrape announces today that it will be providing news videos from
certain of its 28 participating global broadcasters to Channel 13's new TV
program <a href="http://worldfocus.org/">WORLDFOCUS</a>. WorldFocus is designed to respond to the mainstream
media's diminished coverage of international news.
MediaScrape's founder and CEO, Tyler N. Cavell, stated: "The USA's
analog-to-digital TV evolution is rapidly approaching and PBS is leading the
way. As an Internet broadcaster, MediaScrape is prepared to join traditional
television leaders like PBS in leading this digital evolution."
Mr. Cavell added, "Regarding WorldFocus, I agree with Channel 13's
assessment that "All the major networks have closed foreign bureaus and cut
resources for international news coverage, which amounted to just 8 percent of
all American news coverage last year." MediaScrape's global news partners,
including the CBC in Canada and the BBC in the United Kingdom, add true value
to news consumers and shareholders alike who mutually benefit from increasing
demand for global news coverage as foreign bureaus of publicly traded USA
media companies are closing."
