BBC News partners with Yahoo for US video distribution

The BBC has struck a partnership with Yahoo that will see BBC News-branded video clips syndicated across Yahoo sites in North America.

Around 200 BBC News videos will be syndicated to Yahoo per month and they will start appearing on Yahoo sites this month.

The short-form video deal will focus specifically on the BBC’s international news, science, tech and business reporting – drawn from the BBC’s global site BBC.com.

“Through our network of international journalists and the strength of our newsgathering operation, BBC News is able to deliver on the ground reporting and video reports that provide a truly global perspective on the day’s news agenda.

Extending our partnership with Yahoo to North America offers a great opportunity for us to further extend our relationship with online users and give more of them access to our award-winning journalism,” said Gail Jammy, head of business development, BBC Global News.
