NewsPlayer+ launches global news streamer

Nov 16, 2021

November 16, 2021 09.59 Europe/London NewsPlayer+ has launched a new streaming platform offering an array of live global news channels. Delivered via an app on TVs, tablets, smartphones, and laptops, NewsPlayer+ can also be viewed across a growing number of large screen connected devices and platforms, including Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast, and the NewsPlayer+ website. Accessed via a subscription-based service which starts from £2.50 per month in the UK, NewsPlayer+ offers access to news providers including Al Jazeera, Bloomberg, CGTN (China), Euronews, and RT (Russia), as well as channels, which up until now have not been widely accessible in the UK, including C-SPAN (USA), i24 (Israel), Newsmax (USA), Ticker (Australia) and Times Now (India). As other news channels continually come on board, the line-up is constantly growing. CEO of NewsPlayer+, Rich Jacobs explains the origin of the service: “From the start of the pandemic, there was a huge gap in the market for people wanting to access 24/7 global news channels as these were useful sources of real-time information, reflecting different perspectives and views on Covid – whether this may be personal because of family and loved ones being abroad, or just general interest of the virus and how it was impacting the globe. It was a time in history where the world needed to come together to share knowledge, learn and co-operate with one another. “Many news channels were already available, but scattered separately on different platforms, including satellite, cable, terrestrial TV, their own websites, apps, cluttered ad-funded outlets like YouTube, Facebook and illegal streaming sites where navigation and quick access is near impossible. This was the birth of NewsPlayer+, with the mission to bring news channels together, all in one place.” News channels available on NewsPlayer+: Africanews; Al Jazeera; Bloomberg QuickTake; Bloomberg TV; C-SPAN; C-SPAN 2; C-SPAN 3; CGTN; CNA; DW-TV; ET Now; Euronews; France 24; i24 (English); Met Office; NASA TV; NDTV 24×7; Newsmax; NewsNet; OAN; Republic; RT International; Ticker Australia Times Now; TRT World; WION Channels available in select European territories (not available in the UK): CNBC Europe and Sky News International.
