WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. – Oct. 5, 2015 – YipTV, the fast-growing Over the Top (OTT) service that brings live TV broadcasts from around the world to tens of millions of multi-lingual foreign-born consumers living in the United States, today announced the addition of Newsmax TV to its expanding and increasingly diverse channel lineup.
The addition of Newsmax TV, America’s fastest-growing cable news and information channel, targeting the underserved baby boomer audience, raises the number of channels from YipTV to more than 80, with many more to be added soon. YipTV launched in May with 50 channels.
With headquarters in West Palm Beach and Boca Raton, Fla., plus additional studios in New York and, soon, Washington D.C., Newsmax TV offers independent news from a heartland perspective, giving viewers the latest on politics and current events, as well as practical information on health, money and lifestyle that is relevant to a large adult audience. In the run-up to the 2016 election season, Newsmax TV is offering extensive coverage of the candidates and their campaigns.
Newsmax TV is available to more than 40 million U.S. homes via cable and satellite services such as DISH, DIRECTV and Verizon FiOS, and is simulcast across all smartphones and OTT devices. More than 100 million Americans can tune into Newsmax TV free via online, mobile and tablet apps, and OTT platforms like YipTV.
“At YipTV, we’re committed to bringing our subscribers a lineup of TV content that no other provider offers,” said CEO Michael Tribolet. “That’s the reason we’re adding Newsmax TV to the rich blend of channels we’re making available and we’re pleased to do so, especially because of its focus on the early presidential campaigns. We know that topic is one our subscribers are watching closely.”
“We think Newsmax TV’s coverage of the issues, news and events and our informed commentary offer something for everyone, and so we’re happy to be available via YipTV,” Newsmax Media CEO Christopher Ruddy said. “By targeting more than 40 million foreign-born people living in the U.S. today, they are reaching an important audience for us.”
