Haystack News, an ad-supported streaming service that connects US viewers with hyper-relevant local, national and world TV news, has announced the service now offers content from more than 400 providers on its Haystack News streaming AVoD platform, and will surpass more than 50 live news channels this January.
Haystack News launched live news as a complement to its curated and personalised AVoD news service in November 2020. With the addition of more live channels, including those from Hearst Television, Haystack News has tripled the amount of live channels available.
“The core of Haystack News remains the custom newscast we build for each and every viewer, but we are pleased to expand our live channel line-up because we know viewers like to watch news in different ways. Haystack News is proud to bring together local, national and world content from hundreds of channels in one spot. We are committed to making Haystack News the most differentiated TV experience available, no matter how you prefer to watch your news,” said Daniel Barreto, Co-Founder and CEO at Haystack TV. “Hearst has been a tremendous early supporter of Haystack via our longstanding on-demand news content distribution agreement, and we are thrilled to extend our relationship to now include FAST live channel content from its stations across the US.”
Haystack News offers live channels from ABC News Live and CBSN, in addition to Al Jazeera, Bloomberg, Bloomberg Quicktake, Cheddar News, DW, Euronews, Newsmax, Newsy, Yahoo Finance and select live local news broadcast stations from various partners across the US.
