UpSnap, a provider of wireless search and other content for mobile devices, has formed a partnership with Cablevision to deliver real-time news, weather, traffic and other information.

The information is available free of charge for users with cellular phones.

“News 12 has always provided content that viewers can’t get anywhere else. Now, we are able to provide that information in a convenient way when people are not at home” said Patrick Dolan, president of News 12 Networks. “News 12 today is so much more than a television channel. This leading edge technology furthers News 12 as the premier local information provider.”
