This is by far my favorite skill on my Echo Show. You can use this skill to live stream Bloomberg TV channel, which is to my knowledge the only live-streaming video channel (news or otherwise) on Echo Show. And the video feed is rock solid steady and good quality (depending on your internet connection to be of course). No bugs or stream fails like sometimes happens with radio or in the flash briefing. In addition to be a good service to viewiers, it’s a model for others in the sector (both content providers like CNN, CNBC, etc., and service providers like the cable TV companies, cord cutting live streaming TV services like Hulu TV, AT&T DirecTV, etc.) who are racing to bring TV content to our phones, tablets and other screens to take note of. My Echo Show sits on my desk all day and right now Bloomberg has a monopoly on live streaming TV news to this screen.
I followed the suggestions to make Bloomberg TV work on Echo Show and it does not. The screen and voice even says that Bloomberg TV is not available on Echo. It used to work and the description on this app still says that it work. It has been around a year since this stopped working. No excuse for the information to still be wrong! This is one reason I purchased the Show, I wish not that I had not wasted my money on it. The screen is practically worthless.
The only reason I would use any news app on my Echo Show is if it is video enabled. Might just switch to a Facebook Portal, since they seem to have exclusive relationships with CNN, FOX News, and ABC News.
Two stars just because Bloomberg makes quality journalism and I'm sure their offerings for audio are great. That's not what I'm looking for, however.
