Default How do I get British news channels over the web?

Let's say the US did something major, like bombing Iran. I'm not saying they will, that's just the first example I thought of. Rather than only listening to channels like CNN and Fox News, and due to the fact I don't speak any foreign languages, I'd like to have a bookmark ready that would enable me to watch British news.

Preferably free, but I'm willing to consider short subscriptions, like a week or two.

You can click 'WatchLive' (or 'BBC News 24') at the top.
If you then 'right click' the video you can choose 'Play in RealPlayer'.

Don't forget that English is a primary language in Australia, New Zeland, South Africa, Honduras, Guyana, Ireland, Liberia, Sierra Leone, India, and other countries. Several of them have fine English language news outlets. And they tend to cover different areas of the world with a local slant.

Euronews is also available in English.

«EuroNews is a multilingual and pan-European television news channel launched on January 1, 1993. It covers world news from a European perspective.»

BTW, a nice shortwave radio can get you access to many sources of news.

Although the BBC is headlining the goings on in Burma ATM,
it seems information from this country (ex colony) is more
restricted than from almost any other location.
