C-SPAN Now is a free mobile app for fans of boring content
C-SPAN TV channels are for nerds, and no, I don’t intend that to be a derogatory statement – quite the contrary. What I’m saying is C-SPAN viewers are smart guys who’d rather watch US Congress than South Park reruns. You know what? Good for them. While I find C-SPAN incredibly boring, I have a real respect for those who care about the tedious bureaucracy that drives the United States forward.
And now C-SPAN fans have a new way to consume boring video programming that they weirdly enjoy. Called “C-SPAN Now”, it is a new mobile application for Android and iOS. You can watch US House and Senate coverage – as well as other political content – right on your smartphone. Although the app is free, you must sign in with your TV provider’s credentials to access some of the programming.
