VIEQUES, PR — Taboola, the New York/Tel Aviv-based video recommendation engine used by several top news publishers including Bloomberg, CNN and the New York Times to drive video clip consumption, has entered into an agreement with live video news portal Livestation to drive recommendations of live news video on the Web, says Adam Singolda, CEO of Taboola in this interview with Beet.TV
We spoke with Singolda at the Beet.TV Executive Retreat this weekend. In this interview, he explains the uniques challenges in recommending live video news which cannot be searched and organized on the fly. He says that recommendations of live programming is based largely on the behavior of individual users.
Also at the conference, we spoke with Livestation CEO Lippe Oosterhof about the fast-growing portal for live news.
