How to watch CNBC TV18 live on Internet

Like me there are many investors and traders in India and abroad who wants to stay tuned to their favourite stock market or business news channel,  on their phones, tablets or laptops via Internet, while travelling. 

In India CNBC TV18 has the largest markets share and many people like me start their morning by not listening to bhajans but CNBC TV18. 

Sometimes I have to travel for hours while the market is open and I felt a dire need to watch CNBC TV18 on the go as I used to miss important trades due to sudden news and updates about companies, sectors or economy.

HUL back in top 10 market cap list after 3 years

The FMCG major, Hindustan Unilever, has outperformed Sensex by huge margin to get back into the elite club of top 10 companies with highest market capitalization in India. 

HUL hit historic high of Rs 496 today, toppled ICICI Bank to become the country's 10th most valued firm in terms of market capitalization. HUL outperformed the Sensex during the past one year gaining 57% as compared to 2.4% rise in the benchmark Sensex.
