ABC to launch 24 hours news channel
Finally, Australia will have a free-to-air 24 hours news channel. Sky News is 24 hours news channel, but not free. The new channel will be called "ABC News 24" and should be available in a couple of days. In preparation for this new channel, the ABC have been making noticeable moves over the past few days to the structure of their current channel line-up.
The new channel will be made available on channel 24 across all regions in Australia. And the bad news? If you are one of those who demand the highest quality (1080i HD) like Don in beautiful Boston, the ABC HD channel (on channels 20 and 24) have been discontinued.
According to average TV rating data, ABC News is usually ranked behind commercial TV news (Seven News, Nine News, and Ten News). ABC News is known to be focused on rather boring political issues as well as far away international news.
As for me, I am very happy with light news entertainment programme like Sunrise which focus on more local news as well as entertainment news.
