Chinese TV manufacturer Hisense says it will pre-install news focused TV app Haystack TV on its 2020 models.
The app will feature on the new Vidaa 4.0 platform that was introduced at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas last month.
“Vidaa aggregates content from the best global and local partners for Vidaa users,” said Guy Edri, EVP of business development for Hisense’s Vidaa platform. “Bringing the best free content to our customers locally in every market and globally is Vidaa’s global strategy. We are pleased to bring Haystack’s carefully curated and customized blend of local, national, and international news to our platform.”
Haystack describes itself as the “perfect app for news junkies”, though it helps if they live in the United States. It provides free news streaming in more than 85% of local markets.
