CNBC relaunched its own Web site last week, after licensing content to Microsoft's MSN MoneyCentral site for five years.

An extension of the television network's business and financial news and coverage, CNBC.com now features more than 15,000 live streaming and on-demand business videos, with postings of at least 75 new videos per day. Videos are being produced at the company's new all-digital studio in Englewood Cliffs, N.J., in conjunction with CNBC Asia and CNBC Europe.

CNBC.com will air three to eight hours daily of live programming, as well as a live newscast, Market in a Minute, at the top and bottom of each hour from 9:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. (EST). The newscast features CNBC anchors Maria Bartiromo, Bill Griffeth, Joe Kernen, Sue Herera, Erin Burnett, Carl Quintanilla and Becky Quick, among others.

CNBC.com will also host industry blogs by CNBC anchors and reporters. On-air anchors last week frequently plugged new features on the site, such as interactive stock charts.

“We offer unprecedented quantities of video, information, data and opinion,” CNBC.com vice president Meredith Stark said in a statement. “And we've built the pathways to make it all easily accessible and relevant to our viewers. Every aspect of the site is visibly tagged and searchable, so our viewers can customize the business universe to their particular needs, whether it's following their own investment portfolio or targeted companies and industry sectors.”

In addition, through premium offering CNBC Plus, users will have access to live real-time streams of CNBC's Business Day programming (4 a.m.-6 p.m.) in the United States and from CNBC Europe and CNBC Asia. CNBC Plus will have a charter subscription fee of $9.95 per month.
