Interestingly News24 runs a straight BBC feed between the hours of 12am and 1:25am AWST. Showing all the promos. Unlike Al Jazeera where they insert Weather.

Al Jazeera often promotes commercial interests during breaks.

Did anyone notice the transparent sliders between stories yesterday? New, old, malfunction?

Whereas the BBC feed they have just has promos for BBC programs...although of course we can't see them anyway, so perhaps the weather or news headlines from ABC Online would be more useful for New24 audiences.

Malfunction I'm thinking...

Is the ABC doing anything for the NT election this weekend?

Good to see News24 televising the House of Reps. debate on migration. Wish they could use another channel especially to relay Parliament when it sits.


In the UK they have BBC Parliament, whereas we have APAC which is available on the web and Foxtel. It really should be a FTA channel.

I am sure the ABC could have made a FTA channel of it if they wanted. But if it's online it's essentially FTA.

Could they do a basic BBC Parliament and put it as a live stream on iView?

I'd make APAC a part of the SBS multiplex, in place of the proposed SBS Three (which I feel is beyond SBS in their current capacity).

So that means we will probably see a bit of local news from NT on Saturday night!

Judging by the ABC News 24 EPG, I think that ABC News NT will be on ABC1 NT (and simulcast on News 24) at the earlier time of 6pm (6.30pm AEST) tonight with the live NT Election coverage starting at 6.30pm (7pm AEST). :)

Would someone be able to take some caps of tonight's ABC NT election coverage?

7:30 NT aired live on News24 at 8pm AEST last night.

It's just a national News 24 bulletin presented by Richard Davies at 6.30pm AEST, not the NT bulletin.

On the ABC set:
