Major news network offers downloadable news and information to PlayStation Portable users.

Owners of the hot new portable game console can download selected programs from ABC News to it.

“Today, 99% of people with PSPs are using it to play the fantastic games,” said Bernie Gershon, ABC News digital media group senior VP and GM. “But our view is that wherever there is a screen, there is a potential viewer of ABC News.”

Initially, the program “Ahead of the Curve” and some music reviews from all digital ABC News Now will be offered. Other offerings will depend on what sort of content people want to see on the PSP.
