What We're Building

Haystack TV empowers users to watch the news they care about with a personalized headline news channel. Our personalization and big data technology enables a seamless lean back experience that works on smartphones, tablets, TVs and PCs.

TV news is the #1 way Americans stay informed and represents a $15B advertising market. However, YouTube has proven to be an inefficient way to distribute video news online. Publishers large and small are already seeing higher CPMs outside of YouTube and are hungry for a more efficient way to reach video news consumers online. 

Haystack TV users are already watched millions of news videos through our service.
