Clear Channel Outdoor Holdings is launching a new airport TV network called ClearVision, which it bills as “the first real alternative in decades” to a similar service from CNN.
ClearVision will feature news along with music, sports and entertainment from CBS, NBC, the Wall Street Journal and the Tennis Channel. It’s a venture with Connectivision Digital Networks and will debut at Raleigh-Durham International Airport this fall.
The company said Tuesday that airports will ultimately be able to leverage WiFi services to provide travelers with access to the ClearVision network on smartphones, iPads, and laptops.
“ClearVision brings airport entertainment into the modern age and represents a true game-changer for airport advertising in the U.S.,” said William Eccleshare, CEO of Clear Channel Outdoor Holding, a sister company to the giant Clear Channel radio group and one of the world’s biggest outdoor advertising companies.
