    PointCast also provides news from Knight-Ridder, CNN, Reuters, the Los Angeles Times, and the Boston Globe.

    PointCast also recently made an deal with Infoseek to provide users with more information on specific news stories. For example, if a viewer is reading a story in the News channel, they can click on "Tell me more from Infoseek" and be sent to a PointCast/Infoseek cobranded page, which includes similar stories that might provide more information.
