Haystack News, an ad-supported streaming service for local, national, and world news coverage, announced today that it will launch dedicated channels for coverage of MLB, NFL, and college basketball.
“Sports fans who use Haystack News are often cord-cutters or cord-nevers without access to pricey national and regional sports channels,” said Daniel Barreto, Co-Founder and CEO of Haystack TV. “Haystack News will give a rich collection of timely coverage from the eyes and ears in each of the local markets for baseball, college basketball, and football fans.
