Visnews was a London-based international news agency. By 1992 it was owned by NBC News (37.75%), BBC (11%) and Reuters, until Reuters bought out the remaining shares of the company that year. In 1993 it changed its name to Reuters Television and its operations were absorbed into Reuters' global operations.
Visnews was one of two major independent television news suppliers, the other being Worldwide TV News (WTN). At its peak Visnews supplied international news material to 400 broadcasters globally.
