TV2 Nyhetskanalen

I noticed that Norway's sole linear news channel is fairly unique in that it applies a 'jukebox' recycling of previously aired segments throughout the day. The result is significantly fewer hours of live programming during daylight hours. Any idea for why TV2 Nyhetskanalen does not broadcast as many hours live as BBC News 24, BFM TV, or even its Danish counterpart TV2 News?

Presumably the audience is so low during the daytime they don't consider it to be worth the expense of providing an expensive rolling news broadcast all day. The BBC News Channel doesn't exactly rate through the roof during daytime and that's got a far bigger potential audience available to it than in Norway.

From your description it sounds like it might be a similar format to RTE News Now.

I would think that news channels should be 'busiest' with rolling news programmes during the daytime hours. Pre-recorded programmes are much more warranted during primetime hours though.

Sky News used to have news on the hour and pre-recorded programming on the half hour e.g. CBS Morning News. There is still a "jukebox" element e.g Sophy Ridge. Personally I found the former better than the same stories every 15 minutes.

Well evidently not given the schedule they've pursued.

I think it's an interesting question. TV 2 News in Denmark does (I think) do some repeated news bulletins during the daytime hours - but that mostly happens during weekends and holiday periods. (There might be repeated bulletins in the early afternoon - but I can't remember.) Repeated content is more common during the evenings: there are simulcast TV 2 national bulletins at 6pm and 7pm, and the back half hours are filled with magazine programmes that get repeated again later in the evening. So, on a typical Tuesday (for example), you'll have the national 6pm news, followed by the first half of a political discussion show ("Tirsdagsanalyse"), then the national 7pm news, followed by the second half of Tirsdagsanalyse. Then the news is back with a bulletin at 8pm, then both parts of Tirsdagsanalyse run 8.30-9.30. Then there's the national 9.30pm news. Then the news channel returns with its 10pm bulletin. Tirsdagsanalyse gets another run in the midnight slot, and then it's repeated news (I think recorded at either 11 or 11.30pm) overnight, with live broadcasts resuming at 6am.

I'm not entirely familiar with Norway's Nyhetskanalen, but I get the sense it's a somewhat more "budget" operation compared to its Danish cousin. TV 2 (Denmark) seems to be happy with how things are going -- my sense is, it gets quite decent audience reach. Though that doesn't tell you much about its budget/finances.
