NEW YORK, Sept. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- NetworkGlobal Companies, a leading producer of online video spanning from Hollywood and Broadway to world news features, announced today that its NGB.tv video library can be streamed on the iPhone and iPad.
The company has produced the first-ever official live mobile video stream of the 2010 UN General Assembly, providing viewers worldwide with an unfiltered look at how their political delegates address the urgent issues of the global community.
The latest NetworkGlobal app, available for free from iTunes, also allows mobile users to stream the pre-recorded libraries of NGB.tv's news, politics and social issues videos uploaded by independent contributors from around the world.
NetworkGlobal began after the young executive team noticed the ethics they learned in journalism school weren't being practiced by many of the major media outlets. Some networks were either playing it safe to protect advertiser relationships or veiling advertiser-paid placements as actual news content; others were pandering to religious and political persuasions with agenda-driven programming disguised as objective journalism. Instead of joining the machine, NetworkGlobal decided to build a better one.
While NetworkGlobal is headquartered in Manhattan, their production facilities lie wherever their independent contributors can shoot a camera and plug-in a laptop to edit and upload the video. With tens of millions of streams per month, NetworkGlobal ranks alongside many cable news outlets in terms of audience reach.
The NGB.tv mobile application is powered by VideoPublishing.com, a leading online video platform.
"We are pleased to be working with NetworkGlobal to support this innovative and important mobile application and make the proceedings of UN General Assembly accessible to a wider audience," said Kiran Ponamgi, VP of Customer Relations at VideoPublishing.com. "NGB's focus on important global social issues sets them apart from many other online and mobile video initiatives and we look forward to helping them grow."
NetworkGlobal Companies will donate the net advertising revenue generated by the App to the NetworkGlobal scholarship fund for journalists, a program that will allow students with limited means and unlimited creativity to study journalism at the most prestigious universities in the world. The fund's first scholarship school will be Gunnar Larson's (President and CEO of NetworkGlobal) alma mater, Bond University in Australia.
