CNBC Europe, the leading pan-European real-time financial and business TV channel, has launched a new service available by phone. The service provides recordings of the latest CEO interviews and intra-day European and US financial market updates, as well as 'live' 24 hour audio streaming of the channel.

The new service has been created in association with Contact Consultants, specialists in mobile communications solutions. CNBC Europe Mobile is available to pan-European users by dialling local access numbers.*

Rick Cotton, President and Managing Director, CNBC Europe, says: "Our strategy is to provide high quality, real time, financial and business content on the most appropriate platform to our audience. Across Europe, senior business and financial professionals, as well as active private investors, use the information we broadcast to make informed business decisions. They need access to it 24 hours a day, wherever they are. CNBC Europe Mobile is an ideal service for them."

Once users have dialled in to the service, they can listen to the live audio stream of CNBC Europe's broadcast, or access the recorded content menu for:

1. Six most recent CEO interviews

2. European Market Opening Report

3. European Half-Time Report

4. US Market Opening Report

5. European Market Closing Report

6. US Market Closing Report

Rick Cotton continued: "In times of financial turmoil, it is more important than ever that those involved in business and finance keep in touch throughout the day with what is happening in the markets."

Stephen Shepherd, of Contact Consultants, says: "We believe that CNBC Europe Mobile is a great example of how time sensitive and complex content can be delivered in a easy to use and accessible way across Europe."
