WHat they have is fine now!
If they have a canada now format... we'd have the international/national items in the first 30mins, then the 2nd block will just be dodge most of the time, in most states, and the ABC will can a commitment to 30minute news in NT, ACT, SA, WA, TAS and likely QLD.
I'm happy with the set up now... they are the ONLY broadcaster who produces state based news in each state, 7 nights a week.
Despite their flaws, and there are many, the national broadcaster deserves credit for that!
As for SBS - World News is good - I wish more people watched it!
I didn't say Canada Now. I said The National
