SMS Breaking News Service
For news lovers who really can’t wait to know the latest news, Gulf News breaking news SMS service is available to both du and Etisalat subscribers.
The SMS service pushes stories directly to its subscribers, and costs Dh4 per week. Users can subscribe, and unsubscribe by sending a text message to their operator. Details below.
Suggested bulletins come from journalists across the newsroom, and then filtered with only the most important headline news sent out. SMSs are sent even before they make the Web: It is a service designed for those people where being up-to-date with the most local, regional, and global stories really matters.
Because it is a breaking news service the news itself drives the agenda of the SMS service. The number of messages, and the content of the messages themselves depends on the news of the day.
Local news stories can be anything from the announcement of holidays to major accidents, while international stories will be the kinds of stories that you see on the cover of the newspaper — only you’ll get them as they’re happening.
