Introducing NewsPlayer+ The First Ever Unique, Dedicated Global News Streaming Platform In The Wake Of The COVID-19 Crisis
Covid-19 has changed the world and the way we live our lives. Companies have adapted to survive and new companies have launched due to the change in society, on a global scale. NewsPlayer+ is a unique, dedicated platform which streams the leading global news channels, live and all in one place, available from October.
Set to revolutionize the way users view and consume news from around the world, NewsPlayer+, offers a wide range of global and domestic perspectives on breaking live stories for discerning news followers.
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 just £2.50 per month, NewsPlayer+ is an affordable way to connect passionate news audiences to the content that they want, with the added bonus of a 7-day free trial for new users.
With unrivalled access to global perspectives and diverse views, NewsPlayer+ gives subscribers access to some of the world’s biggest news providers including Al Jazeera, Bloomberg, CGTN (China), Euronews and RT (Russia), as well as exclusive 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.
Simple to use and operate, NewsPlayer+ greets users with an initial ‘Wall of News’ page, which enables viewers to see a live, real-time preview of what news is currently showing. Being inundated with news from across the world at the click of a button can be overwhelming however, with NewsPlayer+, subscribers can ‘heart’ their favourite shows, allowing easy access to their most visited channels.
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.”
In a nutshell, Newsplayer+ enables viewers to have easy, convenient, and reliable access to official news channels across a range of streaming devices including on televisions, smart phones, tablets, with a very neat interface and the ability to channel hop.
Keep up to date with global news, business, and politics with the launch of NewsPlayer+, a new streaming platform which allows users to have their finger on the pulse of breaking news stories from the world’s most reliable sources.
NewsPlayer+ can be accessed via the iPhone, iPad, Android, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast, Apple Store, Google Play and on their website.
