Haystack News announced a new agreement with Altice News to launch a live stream of Cheddar News on the ad-supported streaming service. The deal will also bring News 12 New York content to its on-demand news stories later this year, expanding on its goal of hyper-relevant local and national programming.
“Haystack News is proud to build upon its long-standing and successful relationship with Altice News and bring to our users its quality journalism,” said Daniel Barreto, Co-Founder and CEO at Haystack TV. “Haystack also recognizes the critical importance the News 12 brand has for tri-state area consumers in the northeast, and we are very pleased now to expand our local news options.”
“Altice News is thrilled to extend our relationship with Haystack News and further expand the reach of the award-winning journalism at our networks. We believe that news content should be easily accessible to all and are excited to add our offerings of national and local networks, Cheddar News and News 12, to Haystack’s audience and growing lineup of live news channels,” said Jon Steinberg, President, News & Advertising, Altice USA.
Haystack News is available on most major Smart TVs worldwide including the Amazon Fire TV, Android TV, Apple TV, and Roku, and more.
