NBC News is the first American broadcast network to become an Official Account partner on LINE, the fast-growing messaging app that boasts more than 200 million active users around the world.

The partnership introduces the best of NBC News to a vast new audience, and coincides with the extraordinary interest in this year’s U.S. presidential election.

LINE subscribers will see the best political reporting and analysis by the NBC News, MSNBC and Meet the Press political teams, as well as a cross section of our in-depth original reporting -- notably from our Asian American and Pacific Islander content team -- as well as push alerts on all the important breaking news.

LINE was created following the 2011 Japan Earthquake in an effort to establish a new reliable way to contact loved ones as the existing system failed.

NBC News will initially be available to LINE users in the United States, Canada and South Korea.
