In my opinion, Sky doesn’t really pay enough attention to it’s schedules on Sky News. The prestige channel is just a bit… erm… stale. They’ve been concentrating too much on Sky News Today recently. Which part of the schedule do you think needs the most attention?

Dunno, but there should have been an option in your poll for the adverts. I don’t have a problem with much in the Sky News schedule, but the commercial breaks and that Halifax ad just before the weather drive me up the wall. It’s the one advantage that BBC News 24 has, no adverts. (It’s just a pity about their dull presentation. – They are getting better though, I’ll give them that.)
there’s nothing you can really do about the adverts – they have to exist to fund the channel – no ads, no channel – it’s simple. I know they didn’t have many/any ads during the war last year, but i’d imagine they lost an awful lot of money then.
IMO ITV News is worse for ads – every time I flip onto that channel they have an advert on.
With regards to BBC News – its funded by the licence fee, so they don’t have to worry about advertising etc.
But I do find it strange that the Saturday edition beats the weekday ones-like u would assume ppl are in bed that hour of a Sat morning, wouldn’t you?
Well, Sky News does have a good track record at the weekends in term of audience; the evening bullitens often do well. It’s essentially, I believe, to do with the fact that terrestrial news programmes are thinner on the ground over the weekend.
