The News

As we don’t have a TV, Hubby likes to browse the internet for foreign news channels. It has proven to be a good way to keep on top of recent events.
I wonder if any of my readers would be kind enough to let me know details of your News Programmes that are available on line, preferably without constant adverts which are taking up valuable broadband width.

Thank you.


For those of you who have kindly suggested the BBC, we don’t have a TV licence, and to view anything on any device broadcast by the BBC, even if on catch up and not live, would attract the need for one.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    I read the news on line, so no help. And, although I am American, one big source for me is BBC, so really no help 😉 Also CNN website, but their videos have a lot of adverts (as all do theses days). Also, a lot to do with American politics, so not good for you. I also often read the Reuters web site.

    Have you tried the BBC? There shouldn’t be any adverts on that, since it’s funded by UK TV licence payers (although our government seems determined to change all that).

    I just read my news now and again, rather than watch anywhere online.

  4. I get my news online. All our local stations have their own websites, and of course there are the usual worldwide sites like CNN, Microsoft News, Google, Yahoo, AOL, etc. They all have ads, unfortunately. I have to laugh, though, when hubby will watch the news on TV and then try to tell me about it – the websites are often a whole day ahead of the TV news, so I’ve already learned most of what hubby tries to tell me. Annoys the heck out of him.

    I think the BBC app works. If you have a smart phone. There are apps for most other news networks.

    CBC is sort of Canada’s BBC. Unfortunately we do not have a broadcaster that is commercial free. 😪. Here is a link:
