This is a lofty notion. In reality, Bloomberg TV has been something of an orphan asset inside the company. Its ratings are so small as to not qualify for measurement by Nielsen, and as a lone cable network without sister channels with which to bundle and sell to cable distributors commands only 7 cents per subscriber per month, according to figures provided to BuzzFeed for a story on the network last November. By comparison, CNBC collects upwards of 30 cents and Fox Business collects around 13 cents per subscriber per month.
