HAYSTACK TV EXPANDS INTERNATIONAL COVERAGE WITH i24NEWS

Haystack TV has expanded its national and international news coverage with the launch of i24NEWS.

i24NEWS delivers a rich selection of both global and domestic news, including the in-depth international and Middle Eastern news coverage that is its trademark. In addition, i24NEWS offers a wide array of fast-paced, non-partisan national breaking and headline news.

i24NEWS is the second network from the Altice USA News group to join the Haystack TV platform, which already features content from fellow Altice network Cheddar.

“We’ve seen strong viewership growth with Cheddar on Haystack TV, and we’re excited to bring i24NEWS’ important global and national news coverage to even more viewers,” said Jonathan Steinberg, President, Altice News.

“We’re so pleased to deepen our partnership with Altice News,” said Haystack co-founder Daniel Barreto. “We know our rapidly growing audience values the ability to get their news from diverse, trustworthy sources, and i24NEWS is a great addition to our lineup.”

Haystack TV viewers can view coverage from i24NEWS in their feeds via My Headlines. They can also search and add i24NEWS as a favorite source
