CNET News Video: News Corp's Daily launches

1:49 /

News Corp's first iPad exclusive newspaper, The Daily, is unveiled in New York City Wednesday morning. It features a fully-fledged newspaper paired with interactive media including videos, 360 degree images, and even a crossword puzzle.

-I'm Caroline McCarthy for CNET News and we are at the Guggenheim Museum of Art in New York where today News Corporation unveiled The Daily, what it says is the first daily news publication optimized and designed specifically for Apple's iPad. -I'm pleased to welcome you to the launch of The Daily--a national news publication for the iPad that we have created from scratch. -Right now, the content from The Daily is available only on the iPad app and on the web behind a pay wall. Currently, there are no plans to release it on any other tablet devices, though Rupert Murdoch has said that when the tablet market beyond the iPad is a little bit more mature, then he wants to be on every major tablet device. As for subscription fees, The Daily costs 99 cents per week or $39.99 if you want to pay for an entire year up front. News Corp. executives made certain at the launch of The Daily that they want this product to be a completely new brand and a complete new experience. It's heavy on audio and video-- -Hello, I'm [unk]. Welcome to the inaugural issue of The Daily. -as well as touchscreen friendly features like scrolling between different stories and clicking on interactive 360-degree photos. The content in the inaugural issue of The Daily is anchored by a cover story about the ongoing political upheaval in Egypt. But among some of the other headlines you can see are the snowstorms that are all over the country right now, Natalie Portman's pregnancy, and a New York disco for dogs. But what excites me the most is there is a crossword puzzle. I'm Caroline McCarthy for CNET News.
