Yahoo TV widget by Sky News

Bookmark and Share

by David Allen

Sky News is developing a widget that will allow users of internet connected televisions made by Samsung to gain instant access to breaking news stories.

It is believed that this is the first widget of its kind to provide this sort of service from a UK based news service.

The widget is powered by the Yahoo! Widget Engine and will give the user free access to the latest news stories from Sky News without having to be a subscriber.

The consumer will be able to choose news from seven categories: business, politics, showbiz, sport, UK news and world news.

The Sky News widget is due to be launched sometime this year, although the satellite news provider has been unable to provide an accurate launch date for the service.
