Rai News 24 is Italia's first non-stop news and information channel, broadcast on digital terrestrial television in Italy and via satellite around Europe and North America.


RaiNews 24 screen capture, 1999

This public all-news channel was created on April 26, 1999 thanks to a Service Contract between the Italian public television network RAI and the Italian Minister of Communications.

The new channel experiments with an innovative model that combines television, internet and digital technologies. The choice of a multi-screen format, widespread use of video conference connections with correspondents and experts, was significant. The research of the separation from narration of the news and opinions about them is one of the strongest points of this channel. Often, videos are broadcast without commentary, and only some subtitles; so as to not bias the viewer.

In the last two months of 2005 the channel has realized various scoops about the Iraq war, knowing about the use of particular arms like white phosphorus or napalm from the American armed forces and the behaviour in war of some Italian soldiers in Nassiriya. From November 2006, when the Italian journalist Corradino Mineo became chief of the television, the channel use a new graphic, similar to BBC World News, changing its old graphic which was similar to Bloomberg Television. Today the channel is seen in 24 hours from 5.9% of people in the news at 8 pm is followed by 1 million of people, currently is planning to move to HD. In March 2012 the study will change after the change took place in December 2011 graphics it all happened due to the rapid increase in public. Mineo will be substituted within February 2013 because he launched his bid in Italian general election.[2]

On February 24, 2013 at 7:00 am, the channel has resumed its old name Rai News24, at the same time adopting a new news room[3] and a graphical slightly modified: the bumpers and graphics of the network have been updated with the new logo.[4][5]

On September 27, 2015 at 5:15am, the channel has adopted a new news room which is generally all white and improved the graphics design.

On July 11, 2016, the channel has adopted another change in graphics. The logo has changed into a blue box as-well the bottom half of the screen at possibly 5:15am CET. and the clock is now blue at 5:30am CET. The headlines (blue bar) appear to be in a smaller size.


To receive the contents of this news channel 24 hours a day with news bulletins of 15 minutes every half-hour and others 15 minutes of journalistic close examinations about actuality or general news, from the other the weather or economy, it needs the satellite (reception from Hotbird 13° East) or DVB-T receiver (reception only in Italy); Rai News is available also via internet streaming, on IPTV (only in Italy), on Rai 3 from 2 am to 7 am and on Rai 1 from 5.15am to 6am. The streaming internet service uses the proprietary format WMV. To reduce the number of bits needed to the coding of the signal, the screen was divided in some windows and the moving signal occupies less than half total pixels, while the other parts of the screen contained what time is in that moment, the titles of the main news, the internet sites where you can deepen the various news and the logo of the program on air in that moment.
