The WSJ’s Flipboard version offers the full range of content published on the print newspaper and Web site, including U.S. and world news and coverage of politics, technology, lifestyle, sports and entertainment. To access the content subscribers just have to set up a user profile on Flipboard, navigate to settings, and find the WSJ under the accounts heading.
Publisher Dow Jones is also bringing Factiva, its business information and research service, to Flipboard. The Factiva service will include a global collection of licensed news, Web content and company data from more than 32,000 sources around the world, the company said. The service is only available to Factiva subscribers.
The addition of the WSJ further bolsters Flipboard’s already substantial business news offerings. In May 2013, WSJ launched on Flipboard, followed by Bloomberg View in June and Fortune in October of last year.
The WSJ has been undergoing a major reorganization recently. Earlier this month, it pulled the plug on Sunday Journal, which provides content to affiliated newspapers and will also close down the Wall Street Journal Radio Network, including MarketWatch Radio.
In April, the WSJ sold its Office Media Network, which operated digital displays in office building lobbies, to rival Captivate Network. The deal included an interim license agreement enabling the network to continue using WSJ content on existing Office Media Network screens.
