Medium4.com Bags TV3 Ireland

Medium4.com this week entered a content alliance with TV3 of Ireland, under which daily video news from Ireland will be available on Medium4.com's WorldNewsTV.com channel, part of the company's ForeignTV.com Network.

With the addition of the TV3 newscast, WorldNewsTV.com now hosts fourteen distinct round the clock, on-demand international news broadcasts.

TV3's daily broadcast includes full coverage of Irish news along with business, sports, life and culture.

"Our broadcast of TV3's daily news program defines the kind of value and utility our streaming video programming can deliver to a global audience," said Jonathan Braun, chief executive officer of Medium4.com.

"We are excited to be working with TV3 so that millions of Internet users around the world can now watch the latest news from Ireland at home or at work, whenever they choose."

Launched in 1998 as Ireland's first free-to-air Television Broadcaster, TV3 has achieved a great deal in a very short time. In less than four months of broadcasting, over 90 percent of all Irish homes with TV's had tuned in to TV3, and today over a million viewers a week tune in to TV3's daily News Service, including "Sports Tonight," Ireland's first and only daily sports news program.

The station also launched the first Irish-only "breakfast program," and features one of the most technologically modern news facility in all of Europe.
