Fans of Bloomberg TV no longer have to go to their television sets to catch the latest financial and business news--the channel is now available to watch live on the iPad. On Thursday, Bloomberg TV released its new Bloomberg TV+ app for the iPad, providing a 24-hour live broadcast of its television programming, and more.
Users can watch a live stream of Bloomberg TV by tapping the Live television icon that appears in the top right corner of the app. Along with the live video, the app displays bios of guests and people mentioned on the show, stock information on companies mentioned, and extra content on covered topics. A list of featured videos is also available, along with a scrolling ticker of the latest news or market information at the bottom of the app. Bloomberg TV+ supports both portrait and landscape viewing modes; you can watch the live stream and other videos in full-screen mode as well.
The Bloomberg TV+ app supports several other features including the ability to set and receive reminders for upcoming live programs; share videos via Twitter, Facebook, and email; customize the scrolling ticker; download videos for offline viewing; and search the channel's library of video content. You can also access exclusive interviews, original content produced just for Bloomberg's mobile apps, and several of Bloomberg TV's shows on demand.
Bloomberg TV+ is available for free in the App Store, and requires an iPad running iOS 4.2 or later.
