Quick Look: Newsmax is an independent conservative media organization. The Newsmax TV Roku channel offers videos from the Newsmax website and other sources. Features on Newsmax TV is NewsmaxTV Live, which is billed as "live coverage from Newsmax Studios", but the live feed has not worked during any of my several attempts to view it over the last three days.
Video on demand is available in the following categories:
- Finance - "The latest financial and investment news"
- Newsmaker Interviews - "In-depth interviews from top newsmakers"
- Health - "The latest in health and wellness from our experts"
- Special Programming - "On demand shows and videos"
Each category is further subdivided into subcategories. In what is a very poor design decision for a news channel, the videos offer no information on when they were produced or posted. Those videos giving the "latest" news on stocks and commodities could be from an hour ago or a month ago. And because the most-recent "Top of the Hour News" videos (available under each of the above categories) are three days old as of this writing, I'm not betting that the other videos feature news any more recent than that.
