NEWSlink is a global service that delivers the world’s leading licensed daily news in print and media to seafarers, and provides the ideal crew welfare service to commercial ships.
NEWSlink Live is a digital content service for crew. This next generation service enables ships with broader bandwidth connectivity to receive richer, more dynamic news, sports, finance and entertainment content from home, providing sea staff an enhanced onboard digital media experience.
With NEWSlink Live, crew can access the daily NEWSlink Print service in an enhanced digital format, but also benefit from free access to our 24/7 world news feed, our unique key event “play-by-play” live news feed and additional supplementary feeds and media services.
NEWSlink Live is a “plug-and-play” solution that caches all content delivered on the special mini media player (supplied with every subscription). This offers crew a powerful offline digital wireless platform that supports all computers and mobile devices for easy access, while optimising satellite communications bandwidth and costs, regardless of the satellite network utilised.
This service enables ship managers to optimise bandwidth performance, reducing contention issues.
