List of news television channels

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

International news channels are 24-hour news television channels which cover international news updates on their newscast programmes. Most international news channels are broadcast on cable, satellite or the Internet, and many have diversified their staff by broadcasting to multiple large language markets. Like other means of news broadcasting, international news channels have become a fiercely competitive market. Many governments, for example, have established and funded international news channels in order to offer their perspective on events, often in competition against more established foreign or domestic competitors.

The following is a non-exhaustive list of news channels in alphabetical order regardless of language or country of origin.
