Bloomberg Media today debuted Bloomberg Quicktake, a 24/7 streaming news network with 10.5 hours of programming featuring 10 original series and four live daily news shows.
The news network will provide a global view on the biggest stories for a new generation of leaders and professionals. It will cover a broad range of subjects spanning business, technology, culture, society, personal finance, politics, climate, and the business of sports, food, travel, and entertainment.
Bloomberg Quicktake will report on global stories through the lens of business, backed by Bloomberg’s newsroom of 2,700 journalists in 120 countries. It will feature content produced in a variety of compelling formats, including documentary-style original series, anchor-led live news shows, data visualizations, motion graphics, on-the-ground breaking news and live events.
The network launches globally on major streaming platforms including Apple TV, Roku, Android TV, Samsung Smart TV and Amazon Fire TV, through a newly designed Bloomberg App. Viewers can choose between Bloomberg Quicktake’s coverage of global news stories or Bloomberg TV for deeper market-moving finance news. They can watch the network live and access full episodes of original series and top story highlights on demand.
Bloomberg Quicktake will be available on Samsung TV Plus, Samsung’s free Smart TV streaming video service on Channel 1021 starting November 18. Tubi, a division of FOX Entertainment, will carry Bloomberg Quicktake later this year. XUMO, the free live and on-demand streaming service will also stream Bloomberg Quicktake in the coming weeks.
