It depends. I personally can't get on with CNBC - it doesn't seem to be quite as 'professional' as Bloomberg. IMO.

However, I'm not sure whether you would gain any additional information from Bloomberg over CNBC. I've not had the stomach to watch CNBC for more than 5 minutes at a time so I'm not sure what their overall content is like.

I suspect with a £10 package upgrade you would get more than just the Bloomberg channel though so it may be worth it. In any case you should be able to cancel the upgrade and revert to your previous package after a month.
As with a lot of things it boils down to personal preference - try it and see ;)

I have to admit I'm more biased towards Bloomberg, but its down to personal preference.

Both are v good but Bloomberg seem to be quicker on breaking news?

FWIW - Bloomberg on the web is delayed (can't remember exactly how long, at least 30 seconds though I think :confused: )

I suppose this is not a problem if you do not need breaking economic news.

Fatcanary is right Bloomberg was much better before Sept 2002.

FC,

I think I know who u talking abt as well, but can't remember her name niether (perhaps a "Jane" something?... now it'll drive me nuts as well.... ;)

So what do u know abt what happened to all the other presenters? i like those presenters .... they become part of the furniture don't they....

Was Tom on Bloomy this morning? When was that? I saw the usual 10.34 ish slot but it was someone else on there....

Cheers

You may be thinking of Janey Mitchell - she co-presented with Rishaad Salamat, if memory serves.

But I'm sure there was a female co-presenter with Paul George and this is the name that I can't remember.

Thanks for bringing it back to my attention - now it's driving me nuts again :rolleyes:

I must get out more and find a life ;)

Can I nominate cath king ? I think she is lovely and feminine

Whatever happened to Simon Hobbs from CNBC , I think he was the best presenter on tv.
