Business and financial news channel CNBC has launched a real-time news app for the UK and EMEA (that’s industry-speak for Europe, the Middle East, and Africa). The app provides access to CNBC video content such as market analysis and interviews, as well as real-time market data from the London Stock Exchange and New York Stock Exchange. CNBC plans to add more exchanges in the future. Based on the screenshot it looks like users will be able to setup their own portfolio of stocks to track via the app.
The app is available on Virgin Media TiVo units in the UK, as well as Samsung and Panasonic connected TVs, set-top boxes, Blu-ray players, and home theater systems.
