This is the same screen shot I had on satellite.
CNN (US) has been streaming live on 9Now today complete with American ads. It’s under the “Nine News Russia-Ukraine Crisis” tile).
Same screen on the IQ5 IP stream.
As a paying subscriber I am very disappointed by this. One of the things I really like about the selection of news channels on Foxtel is the variety of perspectives across the channels. Removing one because its viewpoint is starkly at odds with the rest (and the political pressure attached to that) is disappointing at best.
I am a firm believer that if you don’t like something, you don’t have to watch it, but you shouldn’t deny others the ability to watch it.
In full disclosure without wanting to derail the thread, I find myself in agreement with Russia in this particular conflict so RT is of value to me, but I greatly appreciate seeing perspectives from all sides about it.
Won’t they get in the shit for that?
Interesting move with CNN international broadcasting on Foxtel

I doubt Nine would be stupid enough to re-stream CNN without consent / agreement
I’ve noticed there’s barely any feed variations with CNN International and CNN US due to the pandemic?
Jesus. Not sure… mmmm actually, I don’t know what to say. How could you possibly be in agreement with Russia?
And RT is currently just a government propaganda outlet. There’s different views; they’re just all the governments.
I don’t mean the stream itself I mean the fact that it has us ads not Australian ones.
nine Prob does not have permission to sell ads In cnn’s content online
Also don’t think there is laws about foreign ads streaming online?
Nine have had a fairly close relationship with CNN for a long time now so it doesn’t surprise me they’ve been able to arrange this. Can’t imagine licensing would be an issue given Nine (and Seven) have been able to access CNN coverage for other things such as presidential elections.
Nine used CNN for the US Presidential election a few years back so this isn’t new for them.
No ticker on the CNN-I feed.
As well as CNN-I showing European times instead of US times.
Sky News International covers up their clock and I think also FTSE info.
Oh also CNN International breaks in to the feed to bring live EU, NATO or Russian pressers.
(I’m a sad person that’s had CNN-I on for 3 days straight)
They’ll probably be more in sync now with this conflict, but CNNI still breaks away from CNN US quite a bit throughout the day, even during the pandemic. Can be quite annoying because a lot of it is documentary or focus style programming with no current news.
