VUit (pronounced “view it”), launched in September by its parent company Syncbak as a free, ad-supported national streaming service aiming to be the “Netflix of Live, Local, and Free,” has unveiled a new channel meant to fill a void in the current presidential election coverage: Battleground States.
The channel will provide viewers across the country a 24/7 digital destination to watch local news segments and campaign events about the presidential election across swing states including: Iowa, Colorado, South Carolina, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Florida, Arizona, Wisconsin and Nevada.
The new offering aggregates and curates election focused news content produced by the wide array of local stations in these states carried by VUit and will include both traditional news segments and longer-form coverage of rallies, keynotes and other events happening in these locales where the 2020 election is likely to be decided. Battleground States will also include coverage of critical down ballot races grabbing national attention in those regions.
Syncbak CEO and Founder Jack Perry said: “In launching VUit, one of our key objectives was enabling viewers anywhere to connect with local towns and see what’s happening through the power of streaming. We are at a watershed moment with the 2020 election, where just keeping up with the national news or your hometown news will not provide the viewer with the full picture. Our hope with the launch of Battleground States is that we fill in some of those blind spots.”
With access to content from local stations in every key state, Battleground States will deliver 24/7, refreshed daily coverage
