IFLIX CAR­RIES CHAN­NEL NEWSASIA

LIN­EAR TV CHAN­NEL ADDED TO IFLIX NEWS PLAT­FORM

Digital Studio - - NEWS UPDATE -

Asia based sub­scrip­tion stream­ing ser­vice iflix has an­nounced a key part­ner for its re­cently launched news ser­vice iflix News. The lin­ear broad­cast of Sin­ga­pore based English-lan­guage Asian news chan­nel Chan­nel NewsAsia will be a key ad­di­tion to iflix News. iflix’s 24-hour news hub ag­gre­gates live news streams, clips, and lin­ear feeds from lead­ing in­ter­na­tional, re­gional and lo­cal news sources.

Un­der­stand­ing the need for reli­able and rel­e­vant up­dates in an on­line en­vi­ron­ment filled with fake click-bait head­lines, iflix has ded­i­cated their news ser­vice to amal­ga­mate and dis­trib­ute trusted, ed­i­to­ri­ally-sound fac­tual con­tent from renowned sources.

Speak­ing about the deal, Craig Gal- vin, ifl ix Global Head of Con­tent, said: “In a world that is both in­creas­ingly lo­cal and global, un­der­stand­ing and aware­ness of cur­rent events and news has never been more rel­e­vant. With ifl ix News, we set out to bring timely, com­pre­hen­sive cov­er­age to users on their terms. We are ex­cited to wel­come Chan­nel NewsAsia, one of Asia’s lead­ing and most trusted tele­vi­sion news chan­nels on­board.”

Woon Chuk Chan, Lead, Chan­nel Dis­tri­bu­tion, said: “The part­ner­ship with iflix is part of our on­go­ing strat­egy to re­main rel­e­vant to a dig­i­tal­ly­fo­cused au­di­ence, giv­ing users greater free­dom and flex­i­bil­ity over their viewing ex­pe­ri­ence.”
