The second category is "NewsStream" which consists of a series of short videos from around the world. There are interviews with current military personal, footage of search and rescue missions and military training videos. This category is separated into 8 separate subcategories, each having 15-20 videos available. The Subcategories include: Featured, Science & Technology, Sports, Entertainment, Health, Family, Missions, and In Focus.

The next category is "Shows", which is a collection of military based programming found on the DOD News Channel (formally called "The Pentagon Channel"). Here you will find past episodes of the shows
In the Fight, The American Veteran, Recon, Battleground, Fit for Duty, Armed Force Boxing, and Grill Sergeants.
