From Wikipedia: edit History BBC News 24 was originally available only to analogue cable television subscribers. This coverage was improved in 1998 with the advent of digital television in the United Kingdom allowing satellite and digital terrestrial television viewers to also view the service. Initially it was difficult to obtain a digital satellite or terrestrial receiver without a subscription to Sky or ONdigital respectively, but now the channel forms an important part of the Freeview package of channels. - en.wikipedia.org read more about BBC News on wikipedia (summary by Clipped).
Freeview multiplex: BBC News is on multiplex PSB1 in England Scotland Northern Ireland Wales .
The £61.1m BBC Newschannel budget is funded by the £3,596m Television Licence Fee, and represents 1.7% of all BBC spending.
Is the channel live, pre-recorded, new content or repeats?
The BBC News channels is a live broadcast, with some pre-recorded shows in the weekend schedule, which are pre-empted when there is serious breaking news.
What's the channel's unique selling point?
The most popular television news channel in the UK from the most respected and trusted news broadcaster.
The programme schedule
Shares with BBC One for Breakfast (6am-8:30am) another main daily bulletins (1pm, 6pm, 10pm). The rest of the daytime schedule is a combination of rolling news (back-to-back bulletins) and breaking news (live events), with mainly rolling news overnight.

Darren T: Some of the time, but "BBC News 24" is retained during the BBC One main bulletins. With the logo at the bottom of the screen now, there seems less reason as this is an overlay. However, the title sequence is shared, so when there is a joint BBC World/BBC News 24 service the titles say "BBC News" and the announcer says "BBC News" but the DOG on the bottom line is "BBC News" or "BBC News 24" or "BBC World" depending on which channel you are watching on.
I have been able to receive News 24 without probolems for some years, free-to-air, on Astra 2. This week it has disappeared - though all the other stations on the same transponder are still working perfectly. Has it changed its frequency?
Anthony Escott: The change has been made so BBC services that need to be on the Astra 2D satellite can be done. This is for the launch Freesat. I've just checked and I get BBC News 24, Parliament, R1, R2, R3, R4 LW, R4 FM, R Scot, R Wales, R Ulster, Asian Network, WS, ETV3, R Cymru, 1Xtra, 6 Music, R7, R n Hae, R London and the interactive screen.
I also still receive the BBC radio programmes on 2D. More confusingly, I newly receive BBC Parliament but the satellite search can't find BBC News24 any longer Why is this so? What can I do about it? Thanks for your help.
BBC News 24 is back - Phew! Folowing the recent unannounced demise of some boxes, there was cause for unease. What further "upgrades" are to be expected which might make currently functioning boxes redundant? Will SKY reallocate its DTT slots, removing SKY NEWS? Michael 27 Aug 09:31
Michael: The next lot of "upgrades" will start occuring when the content of the multiplexes changes. From next year, multiplex B will be cleared for the HD services, and this will means many channels will be on one multiplex from the switched-over transmitters and on a different one on the ones that have not changed yet. For example, Five will move from multiplex A to multiplex 1 (or perhaps 3).
I have borrowed a Durabrand freeviewbox dont know how old it is but it does not have the digital tick is it worth buying off the person who loaned me it?(they have a tv with freeview built in now) a smart price digi box in asda is £14 what would be a fiar price to offer for the durabrand box?
I can get a digital signal of sorts by which i mean i can get bbc4 itv2 itv3 itv 4 c4 c4+1 more 4 bbc parliment cbebbies citv cbbc but not film 4dave or uk history channel nor can i get itv 1 bbc1 or bbc2
ariel is a group A pointed to craigkelly(stv central) but when the box does an automatic search it lists blackhill any reason for this?
I have changed the coax for the same type as used for satelite dishes and it has improved the signal slightly but sometimes it keeps breaking up c5 is especially guilty any suggestions anyone/
I just wanted to mention that the Beebs coverage of the US Election was absolutely crap... Listening to David Dimbleby moan on was like watching a 50's version of the Ulster Mirror, must take my hat off to Sky News of which i'm not necessarily a huge fan.
