Anil Ambani’s BTVi expands content partnership with Reuters
MUMBAI: English business news channel BTVi, owned by Anil Ambani, has joined hands with international multimedia news provider Reuters to bring financial and business news from across the globe to Indian viewers.
Under the partnership, BTVi will have access to Reuters TV studios in key financial centres across the globe. The partnership will offer Indian viewers coverage of all global business and political news, regular global round-ups, as well as extended exclusive features programming.
The latest partnership comes after the recent tie-up between BTVi and Thomson Reuters Financial Services for global market data and news feeds through the latters’ Eikon service providing access to real-time market data, news, fundamental data, analytics and trading developments.
“Reuters News Agency is the world’s largest news provider. BTVi will leverage our global strength to bring global and financial news to their ever-growing audience on a daily basis from our studios around the world and support their coverage of key global events,” said Reuters SVP for sales and content solutions Munira Ibrahim.
Reuters and BTVi propose to further expand the scope of the partnership in the days ahead. “We hope to build on this partnership in the future as we believe there is an unparalleled opportunity in India to create dynamic and engaging content that will appeal to the countries’ affluent and internationally minded population,” Munira added.
“As the consumption of information changes rapidly, BTVi is expanding into the digital universe to reach even larger audiences through path-breaking formats of news gathering. After many years of bringing Indian viewers content on business, the stock markets and the economy, BTVi is ushering in new content offerings for the business news space in India. Over the years, the Indian news ecosystem has evolved significantly and the new consumer wants an intelligent take on developments, delivered in the most intuitive yet dynamic form,” said BTVi executive editor Siddharth Zarabi.
