NewsNation launches connected TV apps
February 22, 2023
NewsNation, a Nexstar Media Group property and US cable news network, has announced the launch of all-new NewsNation-branded connected-television apps on a variety of major platforms, including Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire, Android TV and Samsung devices.
The free NewsNation apps offer OTT viewers clips and highlights of the latest news from NewsNation and content from NewsNation’s talk show lineup. Local weather reports from Nexstar’s local stations are also available and targeted to viewers’ locations to create a personalised experience.
“At NewsNation, our mission is to provide in-depth coverage of the stories that affect the lives of Americans in their local communities and on a national level,” said Michael Corn, President of News at NewsNation. “These apps provide us with another innovative way to reach those viewers wherever they are by delivering content that matters most to them.”
Advertisers can reach NewsNation connected TV viewers across both linear television and connected TVs directly via Nexstar Digital or programmatically via major CTV ad networks.
The NewsNation apps are the first third-party apps to be powered by Haystack TV’s proprietary technology. Haystack’s artificial intelligence platforms serve relevant clips to individual viewers.
