Reuters launches Reuters Connect, a content marketplace driven by the needs of modern day publishing
NEW YORK – Reuters, the world’s largest international multimedia news provider, announced today the launch of Reuters Connect, a content marketplace featuring all of Reuters multimedia content, as well as a diverse array of content from other leading media organizations around the world. Reuters Connect is designed to be a faster, more intelligent way for Reuters News Agency customers to source all the content they need via a single destination. Content providers on the platform include BBC, USA TODAY Sports, Omnisport (part of Perform Content), Variety, Hollywood TV, Jukin Media, Africa24 and more.
Reuters Connect is built to make content discovery quicker and easier, improving clients’ editorial efficiency and enabling them to deliver more stories to their audiences faster than ever before.
Reuters Connect is available via subscription and features a new points-based spending model, Reuters Points, which provides clients with the freedom to access and utilize both Reuters and partner content across multiple topics and multimedia formats. Points are available in quarterly allocations so clients can optimize their editorial spend in line with the ebb and flow of the news agenda. Clients can also continue to subscribe to unlimited content consumption.
“Reuters Connect was driven by the needs of modern day publishing. It’s a first-of-its-kind, dynamic new platform that provides our customers with access to a richer library of content and more flexibility in the content they can utilize,” said Sue Brooks, Global Head of Product for Reuters News Agency. “Because our vast trove of real-time and archive multimedia content dating back to 1896 is now accessible in one place, our customers can create more compelling, engaging stories than ever before.”
Reuters Connect is now being made available to an initial group of customers, and will be rolled out more broadly in the coming months.
