France 24 Partners with Actimagine to Launch 1st Live Broadcast App for iPhone

The French newscaster launched its free France 24 Live application in the iTunes App Store over the weekend. The App streams using the Mobiclip software video codec created by Paris-based Actimagine. Users can watch the live broadcast in French, English or Arabic on either the iPhone or iPod Touch and view popular segments VOD. Currently the service works exclusively on WiFi, but 3G certification is on the horizon. I predict that live streaming broadcast applications for iPhone will quickly become a trend amongst news, weather, business and sports broadcasters worldwide.
