Might boost the ratings Very Happy

In the case of the news channel I think they would feel that junking the channel might lead to criticism that they’re wasting money.

As much as I hate to say it, I really don’t see the point of the BBC News Channel anymore.


The thing is that the BBC wouldn’t want hand rolling news domination to Sky, Aljazeera etc.

Why not? Other news channels exist so the BBC has to have one? Should they be running an porno channel too?

When I think of the BBC I think of Mary Berry. So thanks. Thanks for putting that image in my mind. Consider it regifted. Wink
Turns out nobody had 2020 vision.

Many on TVF would only watch it to figure out the rota.

Just have one BBC news channel. Fully merge it with BBC World News once and for all. And call it BBC News, with opt outs for UK news updates during commercial breaks. They simulcast so much now anyway.

Put the current domestic channel out of its misery! I find it unreliable and slow.
An example is that the same couple of stories show as 'breaking' in red on the flipper for hours after they have broken. It often feels like there isn't any staff working on it or paying attention or caring about the channel.

Watching the domestic channel when it's not simulcasting with World, it often feels like it is a burden and hassle for them and that they think not many people will watching it anyway.
