Haystack News Now Offers 50 Live Channels After Deal with Hearst

Haystack News has announced it now offers 50 live news channels from more than 400 providers on its Haystack News streaming AVOD platform. This is partially thanks to a recent agreement to carry Hearst Television local channels.

Haystack News first launched its live news offering in November of 2020 and has since 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 U.S.”

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 U.S.

Haystack News is available on multiple platforms and all leading Smart TVs worldwide including the Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, Apple TV, and Roku streaming platforms; Hisense, LG, Samsung, Sony, TCL and Vizio Smart TVs; Android and iOS mobile devices, and online at www.haystack.tv.
