1cast is Live in Private Beta

Earlier today, privately held 1Cast went live in private beta.

The new service allows you to customize news feeds from a variety of sources and have them streamed to your desktop or smartphone.

The initial line-up includes feeds from AP, AFP, Reuters, CNBC and CBC.

Streaming quality was near excellent on both high-speed and DSL connections and the variety, although somewhat limited, provided a good overview of the 'morning news' around the world.

Founded in 2006, Kirkland WA based 1Cast recently completed a funding round led by Eagle River Holdings, LLC.

You can check out 1Cast by signing up for an invite here.
