Quick Look: Newsy is a "re-reporter" of news events. Rather doing their own interviews and video, Newsy's anchors report what other news outlets have already reported. In a a typical one- or two-minute Newsy segment, an anchor will cover a story with clips from local news stations, national broadcasters like Fox News and ABC, print media like the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and the Wall Street Journal, and web outlets like The Huffington Post and TMZ.
Each news item is produced as a standalone video, so you aren't getting a midstream clip like of a longer news show like some of the channels provide. The channel launches with a live stream; press the "up" button on your Roku remote to access the video-on-demand library, which includes 9 categories in addition to Newsy Live:
