OMAHA, Neb.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The TD Ameritrade Network1 will now offer active traders and investors its live streaming market analysis and education programming via Fire TV. This announcement comes one year after TD Ameritrade Network’s official launch on www.tdameritradenetwork.com and on TD Ameritrade’s investment platforms. During its first year, the Network received 1.82 million unique visitors across live and on-demand video and aired more than 1,800 hours of live programming.
“There is a thirst for actionable market analysis and education sans political biases, filler content and noise,” said Steve Quirk, executive vice president of trading and education for TD Ameritrade.2 “The Fire TV launch was a natural next step as we continue delivering what the audience truly wants in the easiest format possible, and the success of the TD Ameritrade Network over the past year reflects that mission.”
Since its 2017 launch, the TD Ameritrade Network has expanded from three programs to seven, now streaming 14 hours each weekday from a broadcast studio inside TD Ameritrade’s Chicago office. Investors of all levels can tune in for real-time business updates and growth forecasts delivered by industry-leading CEOs, analysts and investors alongside veteran TD Ameritrade traders.
The TD Ameritrade Network also offers translated programming for investors in Hong Kong and Singapore.
“The TD Ameritrade Network is truly unique because it offers intensive discourse on financial markets that’s happening live, each day, with a level of analytical rigor and logic that’s meaningful to investors,” said Oliver Renick, host on the TD Ameritrade Network. “Our goal is to provide valuable insight and education to everyone from traders to registered investment advisors and institutional managers.”
A recent survey conducted for TD Ameritrade3 found investors cited political and business bias as the largest barrier in consuming financial/market news followed by irrelevant content. When it comes to the type of content they’re seeking, 62% said expert market analysis was first on their list.
In addition to the Fire TV app, the TD Ameritrade Network can be viewed for free on tdameritradenetwork.com. TD Ameritrade clients can also view programming via the TD Ameritrade Mobile Trader app or within the thinkorswim® platform. On-demand video is available on www.tdameritradenetwork.com under “Videos” or on TD Ameritrade Network social media pages – Twitter: @TDANetwork, Facebook: TD Ameritrade Network and YouTube: TD Ameritrade Network.
