CNBC, the business and financial news channel, has launched a TV App for connected TV platforms across the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region.
The CNBC Real-Time TV App will be free to use, and will give viewers access to content from both CNBC’s TV and online channels, via Internet TVs, set-top boxes (STB), Blu-ray players and home theatre systems. Some examples include Panasonic Viera Connect, Philips Net TV, Samsung Smart TV and Virgin Media.
Features of the TV app include:
- Video: CNBC’s latest EMEA videos with CEOs, market analysis and investor insights
- Real-Time Market Data: Live data from the London Stock Exchange, NYSE, NASDAQ and Deutsche Börse (further exchanges will be added in due course)
- My Portfolio: Enables users to personalize a watch-list of up to 30 favorite stocks for easy monitoring
Justine Powell, CNBC’s Vice President of Distribution, EMEA said:
“CNBC’s Real-Time TV App is the latest tool in an unparalleled suite of digital products that makes the real-time data, news and analysis that investors care about, available to them across multiple platforms.”
