Where to watch the News Online
February 9, 2011 10:58 AM   Subscribe

Need a good source for watching news online. Usually miss news on tv so would prefer to watch it when i can...Any suggestions?

Since I am usually not available to watch news on TV when its broad-casted and am a bit overwhelmed by the amount of news online I ask for your suggestions... I would love to be able to watch something online, local/world news that updates every hour or so...or just has the days news available to watch whenever I get the chance... Your help is highly appreciated!

Al Jazeera's live stream is great. Obviously right now much of the focus is on Egypt.

Justin.tv has several news stations. Msnbc and CNN are just two.

Does online include mobile for you? e.g. Al Jazeera has a live stream iPhone app, and I'm sure most major news networks will have livestreaming or video highlights available through smartphone apps.

The ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)'s News 24 station is pretty good, and apparently can be streamed from outside Aus now.

Obviously it can be a bit Australia-centric, but compared to the commercial networks, it's not too bad for world news. It's quite similar to BBC News.

Livestation.com has a good selection of news channels.
