The World's #1 business news network arrives on Nenda
Stockholm, London 6th of November. Swedish streaming service Nenda today announced it has signed a distribution rights agreement with the world’s undisputed leader in business news, CNBC which will see the channel added to the service. The deal will also see CNBC´s business themed VOD-library – with series such as Trailblazers, Managing Asia and other finance-related documentaries – available to viewers across the region.
“Nenda wants to offer premium content within all genres, and CNBC is truly premium, providing a credible news channel focusing on business, the financial markets but also includes great documentaries and entertaining shows. The CNBC news channel and VOD content are highly sought after. Especially for business travellers, which make up a large share of the Nordic hotel guests” says Anders Hässel, CEO and Co-founder of Nenda.
With Nenda´s functionality, CNBC can for the first time offer both its live news channel and on demand library, in the same TV service for hotel guests. Nenda also enables a week archive, meaning that guests can watch what has been aired on the CNBC news channel during the latest seven days.
