What is the News service?

AP prides itself in providing a high quality, reliable news video, which meets the pace of modern newsgathering and stays at the forefront of technological advances.

AP News offer two types of bulletin:

* Prime News contains the best of the day's global news video plus the stories making the headlines in your region, edited into comprehensive news video packages and wraps. All you need do is record the Prime News video bulletin that best meets your agenda and your deadlines. These video bulletins are targeted to specific regions to deliver key content ahead of your local major news junctions.

* News Updates carry the very latest AP news video and breaking news video. All material in the updates is new - there are no repeats. News Updates are available to ALL AP News clients around the globe.

We also offer a file-based delivery solution, AP Media Port, which allows you to receive video digitally as separated files.
