Storify VIP is “a premium service for media organizations, publishers or anyone seeking to deeply integrate social curation and storytelling into their site.” It looks a bit like ScribbleLive’s white-label service:

Real-time updates: Publishers can now live-blog using Storify complete with dynamic, live updating of all stories

Custom story display: Ability to customize how Storify works on a publisher’s site with full CSS styling options and unrestricted API access

Enterprise-level support: Storify is giving priority technical support to VIP customers either by email or phone and an “enhanced Service Level Agreement”

Custom sources: Publishers can now mix their own content, including posts, photos, or even comments into their Storify content by creating a custom source

Private stories: Storify now allows publishers to share stories privately within an organization

No word on price, which will be custom per customer; the BBC is signed on.
