RT news app lands in the Windows Store

russia today windows 8 appThose who have watched Russia Today on the TV, or just RT, as it’s currently known, are already accustomed with the highly professional level of the shows and reporting, similar to other big outlets such as EuroNews or CNN. I have tried out RT for Windows 8 for a few good minutes and you can see for yourself in the video from below that it looks pretty neat, indeed. Everything inside the app is real snappy and what I particularly enjoyed was the live stream feature. I experienced no lags, whatsoever, even while using the highest quality of the stream.

Whenever you want, you can right-click or double tap and you will be able to choose from the “news” and “on the air” sections. In the Live area of the app, you will be able to follow news from Russia or from America. RT also cared to mention on the official description that albeit the channel is government-fund, it shapes its editorial policy free from political and commercial influence. Having watched RT for more than a year now, I can attest to that.

According to the latest statistic, almost 650 million people watch the channel in more than 100 countries across the world, and this doesn’t necessarily mean that they are interested in Russia-oriented news, but they have become used with the professional reporting. To get the app on your Windows devices, follow the link from below.
