Haystack News, the ad-supported streaming news service offering viewers access to content from 350 local, national and world TV news channels, Feb. 10 expanded its content offerings with an agreement with Bloomberg Media to add Bloomberg TV and Bloomberg Quicktake to its recently launched portfolio of live viewing options.
Haystack News now features 18 live streaming channels with the additions of Bloomberg TV, the 24-hour global finance news network delivering market-moving analysis, as well as Bloomberg Quicktake, a news network providing a global view on the biggest stories.
Haystack News launched live news as a complement to its curated and personalized streaming news platform in November 2019 with ABC News Live and CBSN, in addition to Al Jazeera, Euronews, Newsmax, Yahoo Finance and a portfolio of live local news broadcast stations across the U.S.
“Demand for news in the United States remains high and Haystack News leads by offering innovation, flexibility and choice,” Daniel Barreto, co-founder/CEO of Haystack TV, said in a statement. “Our audience and watch-time growth continues to break records and the addition of Bloomberg’s high-quality, award-winning live business and global news further fortifies our content offerings.”
Haystack News showcases the largest streaming portfolio of local, national and global news, offering curated and personalized stories from nearly 350 news providers, including more than 300 local broadcast channels and 100% of the top 30 designated market areas (DMA).
“New platforms such as Haystack News extend our reach and help Bloomberg be everywhere viewers look for the news they need,” said M. Scott Havens, Global Head of Digital and Media Distribution at Bloomberg Media.
