Exactly. Australia always seemed closed off. You couldnt get anything out of the country. They have had a open Youtube stream of ABCNewsChannel for the past year (i think). Previously it was always so difficult to get any news out of the country, especially live news streams for years because of paywalls and geoblocks. Seems like that would be the remit of a pubcasters like BBC, ABC & CBC. CBC keeps doesnt stream much outside of the country. its hard to see anything when you arent home as well. One of the only tv programme that streams regularly live is the National. The CBC news network is geoblocked.


CBC News Network isn't geoblocked, it's a separate subscription. You actually have to pay to watch it. Same as CTV News Channel and CP24, both of those you need to pay a subscription for. Now call me crazy, but since when is a news channel an actual premium channel, that you should pay a subscription for? In my view, you shouldn't.

Those subscriptions AFAIK are TVGO ones where you have to login with your cable/satellite provider. If it’s like it is here in the US it’s geoblocked to only be in Canada.

Edit: CBC has CBC Gem for $4.99 which is geoblocked... https://cbchelp.cbc.ca/hc/en-ca/articles/115003517273-Can-I-watch-CBC-content-on-the-CBC-Gem-app-if-I-m-outside-Canada-
Don’t let anyone treat you like you’re a VO/SOT when you’re a PKG.

Thanks for explaining it better than me. Its effectively geoblocked. Having said that CTV News recently made audio only available of CTV NewsChannel on thru iHeartRadio website. it doesnt seem to be avail thru the iHeartRadio App though.

Its cray that CBC doesnt make any of their live news content available on a streaming channel. Similar to CBSN. Just sub out the adverts for US ones rather than Canada ads. And bobs your uncle. Its funny how places complain the US dominates everything but they dont make their programs or content available. CBC does make a curated content channel available on XUMO streaming networks. Buts its nothing live. Just clips compiled with an ident between each story. Similar to BritBox, its interesting why CBC or ABC Australia wont make their content available on streaming channels. The world of streaming tv makes global broadcasting possible everywhere. There are loads of great programmes that go unseen outside of Canada because the CBC refuses to look outside its borders.

I suspect rights issues are the main factor. The ABC and CBC make a lot of money from selling their non-news programming (and news footage) to broadcasters around the world -- and the price of that programming would drop substantially if it were available to everyone online.

That's the main reason why the BBC's iPlayer is also geoblocked.

Yeah I get the rights issues. I was referring to programming they create that never gets seen anywhere else outside their respective borders. ITV and BBC made programmes like that available via Britbox for a fee. That way they can monetize those productions and put the money back into the corporation and continue to improve the BBC for the license fee payers.

Last Tuesday, here in Brazil, the Jovem Pan radio network (with a handful of owned-and-operated stations and about 80 affiliates for their news/talk network, as well as a sister CHR network, also branded "Jovem Pan") has opened the Antônio Augusto Amaral de Carvalho (or "Seu Tuta") Studio Complex (named after their founder), home of their upcoming online platform, "Panflix", and radically changed the format of their morning newscast (broadcast across their news/talk network, as well as both their news/talk and CHR stations in São Paulo), which changed to a video-first format (Jovem Pan has had video-capable studios for online broadcast for a few years now, but their programming was - and still is, in its majority - designed to be audio-first).

Here's the full-length broadcast, starting with the opening ceremony, with São Paulo state governor, João Doria, and Jovem Pan owner and CEO, Antônio Augusto Amaral de Carvalho FIlho, or "Tutinha" (son of Seu Tuta):


And this is how the broadcast looked (mostly sounded) like a few months ago:


And back in 2015, when video livestreams were mostly an afterthought:
