What does this mean? : "Its most-watched period occurs during the crucial 5-8AM programming slot". Is that American time or GMT or what? It's important to be clear when we're talking about a global, 24hr television network. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 61.123.251.194 (talk) 02:30, 10 November 2008 (UTC)

Why is the Bloomberg multiscreen format called unique? Whats it got that CNBC (or many other channels) don't have?

An out-dates referrence, as others now have such screens. However, Bloomberg was teh first to use such a detailed screen, if I'm not mistaken.
The cool thing about it was that back about a decade ago, it displayed more than news and stock market info, but had horoscopes, sports stats and standings, trivia, and even the previous night's Letterman Top Ten List. They eliminated these for the more business-oriented audience.--CRiyl 08:23, 23 July 2006 (UTC)
The multiframe screen format is called the 'J-Frame' (I am a Bloomberg employee) and I don't think any other network had anything similar (most other nets used multiple crawls... CNBC for example has one crawl at top and two at bottom). At any rate it has been phased out on our English-language channels.202.82.171.186 (talk) 06:40, 2 January 2008 (UTC)factual edit202.82.171.186 (talk) 06:46, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

Links to "list of channels available on..." articles[edit]

Bloomberg is an international channel NOT a channel unique to the US. A list of all channels on two platforms that take a feed of the channel in the US are therefore irrelevant to the article.

AS AFAICT Wikipedia is an international effort as opposed to a US one, the logical conclusion of the include it argument is to have a list of "list of channels available on..." which will include cable, satellite, DTT, ands IPTV platforms all over the world. Logically each channel should also have a link to each of these lists of other channels on platforms that it is available in.

Perhaps a more satisfactory approach might to be a category "Channels on..."? Pit-yacker 00:17, 6 October 2006 (UTC)

Is it worth mentioning Bloomberg may have competetion mainly from CNBC. (But I don't know anything about it, so I may be wrong) Cs92 14 November 2006


Channel Listings on an Encyclopedia?[edit]

Channels are rearranged on various cable and sattelite systems around world constantly. Why even list them here? This is not TV Guide, it's an encyclopedia. Piperdown 02:32, 15 March 2007 (UTC)

80% of text is about a "Controversy"[edit]

Articles should not exist solely for the purpose of axe grinding. Piperdown 02:32, 15 March 2007 (UTC)

{{Request edit}} Not done for now:

  • New version appears to omit the entire controversy section without explanation. User:King4057 (COI Disclosure on User Page) 21:05, 16 May 2012 (UTC)


Hi-there. The current article lacks sourcing and is generally disorganized. I've written a draft of the article in my sandbox to give a little more structure to the article while providing better citations. I would appreciate it if someone would take a look at this draft and, if found appropriate, please implement the changes into the current article. I work on behalf of Bloomberg L.P. and do not want my conflict of interest to interfere with Wikipedia's guidelines by implementing any major changes into the article myself. Thanks for any help. --RivBitz (talk) 18:40, 8 March 2012 (UTC)

Hi RivBitz. Thank you for following our Conflict of interest guideline. I would recommend you post a link to your draft at the WikiProject Cooperation Paid editor help board. Some experienced editors who are used to working with editors in your situation should be able to help you there. Cheers, Ocaasi t | c 18:50, 17 May 2012 (UTC)
