The BBC has been testing out new ways of distributing news recently and its most recent addition comes in the form of a dedicated Subreddit and video news channel on the site.

Just a few months ago, the BBC launched Instafax, an experiment in short-form news delivered via Instagram. Now its attentions have turned to Reddit, which is hardly surprising given the huge number of visitors the site receives – last month alone it had around 113 million visits.


The new Subreddit actually first made a quiet appearance a month ago, but the standalone video news channel was only announced by BBC News via Twitter today. So, if you’re looking for a new way to keep BBC News content front-and-center, you’ve now got one.
