CNBC Now Available on Apple TV

CNBCCNBC has become the first NBCUniversal property available on Apple TV, the network announced today.

The CNBC TV Everywhere app for Apple TV will allow business audiences to watch real-time streaming of the network’s business day programs, which span from 4am to 7pmET. On-demand clips will also be available. Some programs featured on the app include “Squawk Box,” ”Closing Bell,” and “Mad Money with Jim Cramer.“  Primetime and weekend shows will also be available on CNBC/Apple TV, including “The Profit,” “American Greed,” “The Suze Orman Show,” and “Restaurant Startup.”

“Apple TV allows CNBC viewers to be in control of their experience, ensuring they will never miss the business news and information they need or any of the primetime programs they enjoy,” said Mark Hoffman, President of CNBC. “Apple TV is the first, full-featured CNBC TV Everywhere experience viewers have on a TV-connected device, further advancing NBCUniversal’s commitment to making authenticated content accessible to consumers anytime, anywhere,” said Alison Moore, EVP and GM, NBCUniversal TV Everywhere.

According to CNBC, “average monthly TV Everywhere video consumption for CNBC programming in 2014 nearly doubled the 2013 monthly average across desktop and mobile apps.”

CNBC’s Apple TV birth comes a month after ABC News launched its Apple TV app.
