Reuters TV for Apple
February 5, 2015
Reuters, the global news organisation, has launched Reuters TV, its new mobile TV news service available exclusively on Apple devices.
Editorial content within Reuters TV is produced exclusively for the service and draws upon Reuters reach from 2,500 journalists in over 160 countries. To deliver the service’s variable programme lengths, all content is produced in multiple versions and organized by editorial teams in London, Hong Kong, New York and Washington DC, providing 24/7 coverage for viewers.
Reuters TV aims to be more authentic and immediate than traditional TV news, with a focus on telling stories from capitals, money centres and conflict zones around the world and delivering insights and analysis from Reuters journalists as stories unfold.
“This is a radically new way of presenting news straight to consumers,” said Dan Colarusso, Executive Editor of Reuters TV. “Reuters TV will be fast when it needs to be fast, deep when viewers want depth, but most importantly, it will be news that’s authentic, coming straight from the source and journalists on the ground.”
