In 2009 two new channels were launched, Orbit News 2 and Orbit News 3, offering extended coverage of American news from MSNBC and ABC. These two services were taken off air during the fall 2010 at the same time the main channel changed names from Orbit News to OSN News.

In 2005 OSN News stopped carrying CBS News programming, including 60 Minutes, Up to the Minute, The Early Show, 48 Hours, CBS Evening News and Face the Nation, with no prior notice to subscribers as to what had happened.
