Reuters has released version 2.0 of Reuters TV. The new version of the connected TV service introduces Featured Programmes – thematic programmes curated and hosted by Reuters journalists – alongside live feeds of global events and personalised video newscasts. The update includes a major redesign on both Apple TV and the Web that seeks to set the standard for premium online video delivery. Reuters TV is available for iOS and tvOS devices on the Apple App Store, Android devices via Google Play, and on the web globally at Reuters.tv.
Isaac Showman, Managing Director of Reuters TV, said, “This update brings us closer to our vision of deconstructing the traditional TV news experience and reimagining it for today. With version 2.0 of Reuters TV, users can choose between an always up-to-date, on-demand personalized newscast, live video coverage of developing global events, and in-depth thematic reporting that provides insight around major stories. For marketers, the updates offer a beautiful canvas to engage a premium audience of urban professionals who are typically watching on their way to and from work.”
