Fresco News is an Apple TV application that highlights content from citizen journalists. Because most people now carry a smartphone with them at all times, it is easier than ever for consumers to capture first-person accounts of breaking news stories. Fresco News provides an outlet for this content in the form of a curated platform.

The Apple TV application features three different tabs that highlight footage captured by citizen journalists. The Videos tabs displays footage of recent events, while the Highlights section offers a mix of photos and videos that allows user to catch up on the latest news quickly. Finally, the Stories tab organizes all of the content submitted for a particular event into a coherent news segment. All of the content submitted is based on first-person accounts and those who submit to Fresco News are compensated for the photos and videos they share.

Fresco News ultimately makes crowdsourced journalism more accessible to consumers with its user-friendly platform.
