In a statement, Vocus said ausbiz would be located at International Towers in Sydney's Barangaroo Precinct. It would provide rolling coverage of the Australian stock market free, live and on-demand.
“We are seeing how critical it is, particularly during these uncertain times, for people to stay connected to relevant, meaningful information," said Vocus chief executive, Enterprise & Government, Andrew Wildblood.
"Vocus is proud to be a part of bringing this timely and much-needed service to the market, by providing what we excel in – secure, reliable connectivity solutions."
ausbiz has been founded by Australian business and finance news veteran Kylie Merritt and the company is chaired by finance expert and media personality David Koch.
Live streaming will be on from 10am-4.15pm on weekdays, with video on-demand available round-the-clock.
From 14 April, the live stream will start at 8.30am to cover Australian market announcements. A daily program about start-ups, produced in partnership with Startup Daily, will launch later next month.
“Secure and high-capacity connectivity is fundamental to ausbiz offering a high-quality, uninterrupted video streaming service. ausbiz is proud to partner with Vocus to ensure our viewers get the best ausbiz experience, on demand, 24/7,” said Merritt.
ausbiz has an iOS app and its website can be configured to match a user’s investment preferences. Twitter users can also stream live coverage from 10am AEDT.
The new service will source its domestic finance data, along with in-depth research, international equities, indices, currencies, and commodities, from leading Australian fintech platform IRESS which is also a Vocus customer.
