Sadly though, that's the only alternative as BBC World News is unavailable unless you want to go through the trouble of...let's say pointing a satellite dish in the direction of Astra 1KR. Lest I digress, I have to say though that whenever I get to watch BBC World News, I don't get a sense that the UK does not exist as the channel hardly covers stories about the UK on its main news bulletins. In fact, I get a sense that CNNI has more UK-related stories in its programmes than BBC World does.
That was/is the whole purpose of BBC World. It was never meant to be for the diaspora living outside the UK to get UK news. It's commercially funded as it's not aimed for the same tax-paying audience. It's externally facing from the UK, yes, stories which carry weight from the UK do sometimes get broadcast. But it's "World News" for a "world service" essentially - well it was. I haven't watched BBC World in years, actually since it stopped being called World and became World News, Impact this, GMT that. I completely agree with BFGArmy and all_night, AJE is the way to go.
CNNI was (is??) the same from the US market, i.e. externally facing, hence appealing to the UK audience (alongside the rest of the world, of course) and had/will have more UK focused news than BBC World.
I think I've figured it out, as soon as Adrian Finighan jumps ship, I jump along with him, the BBC was great when he was the face (and voice), CNNI was great at that time, now AJE...
