About Non-Stop Live™
FUEL® Non-Stop Live™ is Bitcentral’s newest addition to its industry-changing digital streaming solution. It empowers news stations with the ability to seamlessly stream live newscasts automatically replacing the on-air ads with digital ads, records, and replays the most recent newscast until the next live newscast is available.
