Right, we are talking 2002 here, but I worked at a radio station who appeared on the Sky EPG, and the programming director had to email the station schedule to Sky upto 4 weeks in advance on an excel spreadsheet which they then loaded into the EPG data feed.


What Satellite magazine also had listings for the satellite channels a month in advance, so it's been common practice for many years.

Interesting/gossipy line in an article from NBC News' media editor Claire Atkinson, on NBCNews.com article this week

"If Comcast wins, it will become the biggest pay-TV provider in the world with a total of 52 million customer relationships. It will also have an important U.K. lynchpin for NBC News, as it plans to transform Euronews into a global news service if it gets to add Sky News."

Ignoring the terrible grammar, it's an interesting concept. If you bring together the potential for collaboration between journalists/newsgathering at NBC/CNBC/MSNBC-Telemundo-Sky-Euronews-Sky News Arabia... that's quite a force.

Whether that's practical is another question I guess?

Now that's interesting because for years (not sure if this is still the case, mind) NBC's UK partners were ITN - indeed, I believe their UK base is in the same building as ITN, and at one point, they shared an Africa correspondent in Rohit Kachroo. And of course, one of the big cheeses at NBC News is Deborah Turness, who was the chief editor of ITV News for years; correspondents Bill Neely and Keir Simmons have also moved from ITN to NBC in recent years.

The integration of Euronews and NBC News would be interesting. It'd certainly beef up Sky's coverage of European events, while NBC could move their London bureau to Osterley, while Euronews in addition to having access to NBC News, would also have Sky as well.

Sky News as part of Comcast would have more of a long term future as part of the NBC News network than under Disney, which I'm sure would keep it going, but no real future.

I’m often confused about the relationship between the two. One person who writes / edits for NBCNews.com during the overnight hours in London told me the ITN deal is a lot more facility sharing that content (at least for NBC). But who knows. I read an Independent article that backs it up where ITN gets more out of the deal than NBC.

Also with if the deal is like the Independent says it is where ITN gets more out of it we got to remember the US is a huge country. Where back then in the UK NBC in London could probably send a team and a satellite truck anywhere in a day. I know there’s atleast two Sprinters (I’ve seen them in use when CNBC goes to Davos).

FWIW NBC moved in with ITN almost a decade ago. Apparently it was around the time ITN redid some of their workspace and some NBC employees were assigned to ITN the or bought out. (Remember this is when the Great Recession was starting.)

Edit : Found the tweet from the NBC journalist who said its more facility and resource sharing. Of course it’s four years old and could have changed.

What will also be interesting to see is, if NBC gets SkyNews, what a hit FOX News will take. Currently they typically will take SKYNEWS live coverage if something big happens in the UK or Europe. This take-over will severely handicap their European news coverage of major breaking stories.

They might not have the full resources but they have access to Reuters and the AP plus the news team at their “sister” publications - at News UK. They can request live reports. I’m surprised they’re not associate members of the EBU like NBC, ABC and CBS are.

Yep, almost all the UK content on AP is from Sky, so they'd still have access to that, assuming that continues (and I don't see why it shouldn't)

Probably because Sky is a member of a ENEX which is Eurovision's main rival. Apart from the early co-operation that formed Eurosport, there's not been much love between the EBU and Murdoch, which is not surprising seeing as it's essentially a consortium of the establishment broadcasters

true, thats the case with most news channels.

So, it looks like Good Morning Europe runs from 0700 CET to 1145 CET, with EuroNews Now taking over at 1200 CET. But you can't find information about these shows on the EuroNews website at all. It's really frustrating.
