The 3-7 shift has to be the hardest for the presenter as they're constantly standing up for four hours? (3.5 from September)


Perhaps, though some probably quite like standing up as maybe it gives them more energy. Plenty of people in other professions are on their feet for longer periods of time. It's probably not as bad as you'd think.

I can't imagine it's fun for presenters in heels! True, people spend longer on their feet – I've worked 12 hour shifts in a kitchen but wearing comfortable shoes...

The only way to know for sure I suppose is to ask them!

Any idea for the blocking? Is there the possibility of the channel being added to local satellite & cable and the carriage contracts require it (kind of like how AJE disappeared when AJAM launched).

As for the ads all I saw (maybe there's a N. American AppleTV feed) were for a health company and a middle eastern airline.

Sky News has been available for many years on OSN and Etisalat Elife. The stream has worked since they launched it but must have been blocked in the past 2 weeks while I have been back in the UK.

Ah well, back to watching g BBC World.

But you shouldn't have to. This is a news channel not a premium movie service. It just comes across as insular and pedantic.
