As print sales across Europe decline, what's a paper to do? As we reported earlier this week, taking advantage of different types of media is one option.

Swiss national daily Tages-Anzeiger has taken a step in this direction with the launch of a TV streaming app for iPad called TV Sélection. The paper is offering its users a choice of TV programs, feature movies and documentaries from over 100 channels hosted through TV streaming service Zattoo.

Why would users go to the app, rather than straight to Zattoo itself? This is where the editorial experience of the Tages-Anzeiger kicks in. Journalists from the paper's culture section will curate and select the best programs to create what Computer World calls "a more personal experience" that eliminates "aimless channel-flicking".

Programs are stored on part of the app called 'Total Recall' and can be viewed for a limited period after they are first made available.
