Citytv starts streaming live Canadian content to iPhone
Michelle Clancy ęRapidTVNews | 09-12-2011 Canada's Citytv has expanded live programming options via its new mobile offering, the Citytv Video App, to be available on iPhone and iPod Touch.
The app, recently launched for the iPad, is designed to provide live feeds to Citytv's daily morning and daytime programming, along with on-demand offerings of full episode TV shows and exclusive local content. The app displays a TV schedule, and offers a notification service that reminds users when their favourite shows are available on the app and television. User viewing history and favourites are saved, and the app can be used to share video links on Facebook, Twitter and via email.
"Citytv continues to remain at the forefront of innovative digital content," said Andrea Gagliardi, senior director and general manager of broadcasting and digital at Citytv, in a statement. "This new app demonstrates our ongoing commitment to deliver unique, entertaining and informative content to our viewers anytime and anywhere on multiple devices."
Citytv broadcasts in Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton and Winnipeg, and prodes itself on offering regional, relevant content to those city's denizens.
