The New York Times's content will include coverage from the newspaper and special reports for the PointCast Network. The New York Times will be available to PointCast users this fall.
The PointCast Network is a free service that provides breaking news and information, stock quotes, weather reports, and sports scores directly to users' computer screen.
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.
