Watchup, a news streaming service, announced Monday new content agreements with Meredith and E. W. Scripps, part of an expansion that adds 51 local stations in 39 top markets to the content available on the Watchup app.

“We are always seeking new ways to better serve our local news audience and Watchup provides a unique platform to reach local viewers the way they want to view content,” said Patrick McCreery, vice president of news & marketing for Meredith’s Local Media Group, which will provide content from stations in 10 markets including Atlanta, Phoenix, St. Louis and Portland.

Last month, Watchup announced a similar content agreement with Tribune, giving Watchup users access to video from 30 Tribune stations.
