Streaming aggregator ScreenHits TV will break into the linear channel space globally by offering access to the 24/7 live feeds of Bloomberg Television, enhanced service Bloomberg TV+ (excluding the US) and its global streaming news channel Quicktake.
The linear channels will be made available in the coming weeks to subscribers on ScreenHits TV’s desktop platform – in the process of being rolled out throughout its territories – and on the iOS mobile/tablet app available via the Apple Store and Amazon Fire TV Stick. The app will also soon be offered on Google Chromecast, Android phones, Metz, other connected TVs and new content platforms.
Bloomberg Television will serve as a major component of a streaming news package in development by ScreenHits to complement its OTT services. Varying by territory, the news package will also include live channels and on-demand content available on the BBC iPlayer – an existing content partner of ScreenHits in the UK – and other global TV news brands expected to follow.
“We are incredibly excited and proud to add this brilliant, forward-looking financial media organisation to our widening array of brand name news and entertainment content partnerships,” said Rose Hulse, CEO-Founder of ScreenHits. “From its start decades ago with Bloomberg Terminals to OTT today, Bloomberg is known for embracing new technologies enabling smart, growth-driven models – each designed to make it easy for its massive worldwide base of subscribers to access its essential business and capital markets content wherever they congregate.”
