Australian News Channel (ANC) and WIN Television have announced a content sharing agreement between ANC’s Sky News Australia and the regional WIN network.
WIN will launch a new free-to-air channel, Sky News On WIN, featuring a mix of live and time-shifted content from Sky News Australia. In return, Sky News Australia will have access to regional news from within WIN’s own local news bureaus for broadcast across its Foxtel platform. WIN News will also have access to Sky News Australia’s national affairs content when relevant to its local markets.
More details on programming on Sky News On WIN are to be announced closer to the launch later this year.
Sky News On WIN will broadcast on channel 83 (53 in Northern NSW) in WIN’s regional markets in New South Wales, Queensland, Victoria, Western Australia and South Australia, statewide across Tasmania and in the Australian Capital Territory.
Australian News Channel is a wholly owned subsidiary of News Corp Australia.
Finally – now this IS news (at last) for so many people in the WIN areas. Now let’s see Ten get on board with this one so we can also have Sky News for free in the larger capital cities.
Is the Sky News free to air announcement going to include NBN as well as the WIN channel?
As far as I am aware it is WIN only. WIN broadcasts in the same area covered by NBN in NSW anyway
