Fox’s Michael Jackson Doctor Trial App Tops iTunes

Fox Television Stations’ Michael Jackson Doctor Trial app, which was released Monday for iPhones, iPads and Android devices, ranked number one yesterday among paid apps on the Apple store.

Content on the 99-cent smartphone app is produced by KTTV, the Fox owned-and-operated station in Los Angeles. In addition to a live video stream from the trial, which began in LA yesterday, users can also browse photo galleries and biographies of the key players.

“What you can do now is carry the courtroom with you,” Jose Rios, vice president of digital news operations for Fox Television Stations, told TVNewsCheck. Rios, a former KTTV news director, was tapped to oversee app development for the 27 Fox O&Os earlier this year.
