Sky news is the only news channel i watch now because whilst it does have ad breaks, they arent long and there is little sport. Thats what i love about thrm, there is a brief sports report, a couple lines said, a round up of the scores and thats it, it gets back to reporting on Syria, or global disasters. Their business section is longer than the sports bulletin and thats a good thing, it makes sense because sky have a sports channel, when i want to watch sports news i flick over to that, end of.
The channel has great reporters who dont stumble or make any silly random comments, they even have reporters who are trained in local languages to the places they are reporting from. E.g chinese, arabic and hindi. Their reports are not too long and whilst some have poor picture or sound quality (e.g Syria) this is not their fault, as the internet stream connection is poor. The reporters do a good job and try to cover everything in the story.
Their facts and figures are bang on, up to date and they now have a stock ticker in the top left hand corner of the screen to monitor the markets constantly. The timetable is shared evenly with different stories except when breaking news comes in or there is a serious story that is going on live. This usually happens with say for example, the Riots last year or a terrorist attack such as 7/7.
The channel is on 24/7 and even in the early hours of the morning they do special reports and carry on doing the news and weather, with breaking news stories now and then. Their weather reports are very good, accurate and tell you the temperatures of the major towns and cities. Unlike other news channels they also do the weather long range, for europe and the rest of the world.
I really enjoynwatching sky news, its just something to watch when theres nothing else on and late at night you can see what the next days papers are with a bit of humour from famous paper editors or even authors who have a huge interest in current affairs.
Summary: Perfect news channel
