A LOCAL NEWS & WEATHER EXPERIENCE FOR SMART TV USERS

City News Beat is a developing a nationwide, local news network for SMART TV users on Roku and Amazon Fire TV.  The Untethered movement of cable cord-cutters & cord-nevers want an experience that isn't a web site, a TV newscast or aimless streams of "stuff". They want the freedom to define their experience, they seek a human connection without all the commentary and they don't want to have to work too hard after the app starts.  Welcome to City News Beat! 

We're on top of local trending topics, thanks to our data informed story assignment. We contextualize the top trending stories of the day with facts, not talking heads. Our data matches Recreational content to deliver a true Newspaper-on-TV experience for personalized viewing, in an easy streaming package for Roku and Fire TV.
