CNBC’s official Android app, CNBC: Breaking Business News & Live Market Data, can now be downloaded on the Android TV platform, allowing users to stream their favorite content from the broadcaster directly to the biggest screen in their home rather than being stuck on a phone, tablet, or a computer. Beyond premium content accessible via a login through a paid TV provider, there is quite a bit of content for non-paying users as well. Beyond paid content, free short-form clips are available from a variety of shows via curated playlists without ever needing to sign in, and all of the app’s features appear to have made their way to Android TV.
It goes without saying that the inclusion of the app to the platform is probably not the biggest change to Android TV over the past few months. Having said that, new content is always welcome and the added ability to utilize Google’s A.I.-driven digital assistant is an interesting direction for the app to take and may signal that CNBC will be exploring voice-enabled user interfaces in a more in-depth manner going forward.
