Bloomberg TV starts doing its business on TVPlayer

Bloomberg is the latest free streaming service to touch down on freemium on-demand service TVPlayer. 

The new service promises a live news service delivering up-to-the-minute information on international movements in markets along with analysis and comment – essentially the same content you’ll be able to access through the Bloomberg iOS and Android apps, optimised for connected TV platforms including the new Apple TV and Amazon Fire TV

Adam Smith, Founder and CEO of TVPlayer, said: “It is clear that the delivery of TV Everywhere services through a unified gateway is a proposition that consumers want more than ever as part of their TV experience. 

“Bloomberg is a significant addition to our content portfolio and its launch will further increase the diversity of our top-level content for our viewers, as well as enabling Bloomberg Media to extend its brand reach in a streamlined way.”

TVPlayer blends live streams of free to air TV channels like BBC One, Dave and 4Music with the option of signing up for a £5/month subscription that’ll give you streams of pay TV channels like Cartoon Network, Eurosport, Discovery and GOLD, amongst others. 

The service launched in 2014, with TVPlayer Plus arriving a year later. Since launch, TVPlayer has grown to draw in on average 600,000 unique visits a week, although it’s unclear how many of those visitors are paying subscribers. 

There is no limit to the number of devices you can access free to air TVPlayer content on, but simultaneous streams of paid content is limited to three devices at any one time. 

You can download TVPlayer apps for iOS and Android as well as from the relevant app stores on Apple TV, Amaxon Fire TV and EE TV.
