WSJ Live, live and on-demand news on Boxee

by

This morning, we’re launching WSJ Live into the Boxee App Library, bringing original live news programming from The Wall Street Journal to Boxee. The app also offers thousands of free on-demand video from across Dow Jones’ network of sites.

WSJ Live will begin to offer 4 hours of live news every day coming on shows like News Hub, Markets Hub, Lunch Break, Digits, Mean Street, and Opinion Journal in the coming week. That’ll be at least 2 more hours of actual live news every day than WSJ Live’s cable news counterparts.

The app also offers breaking news updates, exclusive interviews, and special events coverage. With original content pouring in from Dow Jones’ army of journalists at publications like Dow Jones Newswires, Barron’s, Marketwatch, SmartMoney and AllThingsDigital this app is going to quickly become invaluable to any news-junkies on Boxee.

So hop into the app now and check out live news from WSJ Live and over 2,000 on-demand videos from WSJ’s great news sources.

Boxee team most assuredly livin’ de life

by

We wanted to post a quick thanks for all the love on the iPad app. We broke into the top 10 apps in iTunes just 2 and a half days after release. To say we’re excited would be more than a little bit of an understatement.

The general feeling around the office may best be expressed via a work by the great New Jersey born performing artist A. Samuels.

Thank you! And you’re welcome for introducing you to the most compelling new artist since Rebecca Black.
