Global News to launch Canada’s first 24/7 streaming news channel

Recommended Posts

All the luck in the world to everyone at Global. Here's hoping it's a big success. Maybe it'll stream worldwide and not geo-blocked like CBSN and Sky News.

Looks like they've soft-launched the OTT channels...

 

If you go to GlobalTV.com and click on "Live TV", there is a Global News logo on the page. You click on that, and you get to choose between the following feeds:

  • BC News
  • Calgary News
  • Edmonton News
  • Toronto News
  • National News

Worth mentioning that its geoblocked so you're unable to watch this if you're not in Canada.

Of course it is. Can you still stream Global's local news on their websites if it's not part of this 24/7 network?

You got to feel for Global. This is now their third attempt at launching a national news network. After failing to ride the wave of BC1 despite convincing the City of Mississauga, they reorganized and tried to go OTT with the launch of their national "News Feed", with the hope that they can leverage their award-winning centralization efforts. That didn't fare out either.

 

Maybe third time's the charm?

The new streaming news channels (as well as the new Global TV app) has officially launched after what appeared to be a soft launch.

 

Also, according to the VP of news at Global/Corus, the news channels are not supposed to be geoblocked.
