I think they should be more news channels on sky for the UK. I here that ITV news is closing so that will only leave us with 2 channels which is not very good.

They don't have much UK news on. Sky News and News 24 do. ITV news is OK but I don't watch it as much as the other 2.

Where did you hear that - I can find no mention of it?

Hopefully they will change their minds.

Thats been rumoured for years. Theres never been any concrete info on it. However, it would have a natural home once "Downunder TV" gets on air.

BBC News is the best i think.
Provided you don't mind heavily censored reports with definite editors bias. (just like the newspapers really)
