Haystack TV has you covered

FREE in the App Store

With Haystack TV, you get the news you want in a format that is relaxing and informative.

Customizable News. Haystack TV: Watch world news, business & finance, and celebrity looks like they are trying to be the app that really lets you customize your news the way you want it. First pick from a few really broad categories. Then they give a stack of hashtags to select from, though I couldn't help but notice #sanders was never on the list. Also select some networks you love, at least they offered one of our favorites The Young Turks. After doing that they present you with news formulated around your picks. The selection was okay, but felt a little controlled. Their algorithm might need a little work, and some more categories and hashtags would be nice, but we like where they are going with it.
