Yesterday, Haystack TV announced a new channel on the free news streaming service dedicated to covering stories on wildfires in California. The channel will include content from numerous local partners and provide updates more than a dozen (and counting) active wildfires currently raging through California neighborhoods, including the Getty and Tick fires.
“Haystack TV viewers will have better and more comprehensive coverage than anywhere else, certainly a different perspective than watching only one local news source or one national outlet,” said Ish Harshawat, co-founder of Haystack TV. “And of course, the best part is that viewers don’t have to bounce from channel to channel to find the information they need.”
The fires have burned more than 94,000 acres and threatened millions of homes all the way from Southern California to the San Francisco area, forcing many to evacuate including celebrities like Lebron James and Arnold Schwarzenegger. This new channel will provide much-needed information to locals and people with loved ones in the affected areas.
Tailored to each viewer, Haystack TV delivers a mix of the day’s top headlines and other news tuned to their specific interests from its library of more than 250 trusted premium news sources. Haystack TV is available for free on streaming devices like Roku, Apple TV and Amazon Fire, all major connected TV platforms, Android and iOS mobile devices, and on their website.
