How to watch Australian regional TV news channels
Posted by Engadgets on Wednesday, 24 June 2018 20:26:03I’m glad I didn’t fall for the “there’s no news in Australia” excuse, but I’ve been listening to a lot of regional Australian TV news lately.
And the one news that’s stuck out to me is that most of the shows that have been airing are of the sort that you’d expect to be on a regional TV channel.
Here’s what I’ve picked up so far:ABC TV News Tonight (Australia) : It’s a news program, which is understandable given its focus on Australia’s politics and the politics of its people, but it’s really hard to tell much from a programme that has been airing for just over a month.
ABC TV’s coverage of Australia’s elections has focused on the Coalition and Labor, but this week it was focused on the Greens and the Nationals.
In a press release the broadcaster wrote:”ABC News Tonight will deliver the news, facts and views of all the major parties in the Australian Parliament, as well as a variety of opinion-provoking and opinion-shaping programmes, in a variety and timely ways.”
The program has been a regular fixture on ABC News since it was launched in September.
Fox News Channel (Australia): I’ve seen some pretty good regional Fox News coverage this year, but Fox’s coverage has tended to focus on the Greens, rather than the ALP, which the network was trying to get rid of.
It also featured the Prime Minister’s first major policy announcement, a plan to phase out the carbon tax.
This week Fox aired a segment that showed the Australian Broadcasting Corporation’s Prime Minister Julia Gillard delivering a speech to a group of university students in Melbourne, and was also featured on the Fox program, The Five with the President of Australia, George Brandis, as he made a speech.
As it turns out, the President was very much on the mind of the students, who thought that it was “the most important speech of his life” and they were hoping to get some government action on climate change.
The National News Channel (Australia).
The channel has also had a strong showing, with a headline story on the Australian Labor Party going viral in the days following the Federal Labor Coronavirus scare.
In fact, National News Channel has had more coverage of the Prime Ministers speech than any other Australian news channel.
I’m sure there’s more news to come for the network, but at the moment, its been pretty good.
Hulu Australia (Australia); Hululu is the network’s flagship channel and the largest local television channel in Australia, and it has been showing the Prime ministers speech in its Hollywood sections this week.
At the time of writing, HULUL had just seen the Prime Minister Gillard deliver her speech on climate and other issues.
The Prime Minister had been trying to use HUMA’s HBO TV radio program to provide a balance to the media coverage of her speech.
HULU has also featured Australia’s most popular local news channel Local View.
So far, local news has been represented on HURDLY the channel, and there are also HOLY hundreds of local news programmes on the channel.
It’s not as good as ABC News Tonight, but it’s still pretty good.
ABC TV (Australia), The ABC is the world’s biggest broadcaster, and ABC News is the largest national news network.
Despite having a huge Australian audience, ABC’s local news shows are almost exclusively based on ABC regional news programs.
For instance, Last Call is a news program that focuses on the national government, but ABC News Radio Australia is the station that airs the prime minister’s message in the city.
There are also ABC radio programs that focus on local issues, like The National News and National Story.
On top of the ABCs local coverage, Local View has also shown the Prime Ministers address to the students at Universities Australia on the national radio station FMX and on the local radio station LIVE which is a major news network with a national network partner.
Some local stations have been more successful than others in creating local programs, but overall, Australia seems to have
