TORONTO (
March 18, 2014) – Canada’s #1 news organization announced today the launch of CTV News GO and CP24 GO, new digital products available for free online at CTVNews.ca and CP24.com, on Apple iOS devices and, on Android phones and tablets. Today’s launch marks the first time CTV News and CP24 apps are available on Android devices. Complementing the CTV GO offering unveiled last November and last week’s TSN GO announcement, CTV News GO and CP24 GO deliver more news stories and video to Canadians whenever and wherever they want them.

 

To audiences across the country, CTV News GO provides live and on-demand video of Canada’s most-watched newscast, CTV NATIONAL NEWS WITH LISA LAFLAMME, as well as other local and national news programs. The new apps also feature news and video from the top stories of the day, all housed within a clean, new design. TV subscribers can also watch a live stream of CTV News Channel with its 24/7 news coverage.

 

For the first time, CP24 brings its 24/7 coverage to iPads and Android devices, dramatically increasing the channel’s presence across multiple platforms. As with CTV News GO, CP24 GO is also free and its news coverage and video clips are available to all users. CP24 TV subscribers can also access a live stream of Toronto’s breaking news channel and catch on up their favourite CP24 talk shows online and in the new apps.  

 

“We are delighted to provide viewers a new way to turn to Canada’s most-trusted news source wherever and whenever they need it,” said Wendy Freeman, President, CTV News. “As Canada’s go-to source for local, national, and international headlines, the CTV News GO and CP24 GO products underscore our commitment to news delivery across multiple platforms, making it easy for viewers to stay connected to the headlines anytime and anywhere.” 

 

CTV News GO and CP24 GO offer an intuitive, easy-to-use experience that automatically delivers the best video quality to each user regardless of their internet connection. CTV News GO and CP24 GO each epitomize sleek design, a simple interface, and richer, more robust content – all of which amounts to a world-class viewing experience for users.  

 

In July 2013, TMN GO became the first ever Canadian TV Everywhere product from a broadcaster to offer premium on demand programming. November marked the launch of CTV GO featuring Canada’s #1 television lineup, followed by the launch of TSN GO last week. Bell Media is poised to launch even more GO products, while expanding its current content offerings.
