I think that there is too much sport on Sky News. I would like to see more of this time dedicated to more in-depth analysis of the news stories and more business news. What does everyone think?

I don't think there is too much sport on Sky News, however I don't want to see more of it, it is about just right.

I think if people want to watch sport, go onto Sky Sports News.

I think the sports news at 20 past the hour and the bulletin just before the hour is good, however sportsline after Sky News at Ten is too long. Sport is an important part of a news round up, but if people want it as in depth as sportsline gives it then surely they could just switch over to Sky Sports News..?

I agree - i think 10 mins in every hour is more than enough

I think there is too much sport. I think they use their Sky Sports News resources too much.

I would love to see a longer business news at say 10minutes to the hour......in my opinion 10mins of every hour from 20past until half past of sport is more than enough.



I always switch off sportsline!

I have to agree. Wilson and the Fosters are an ace market time and would do a good job if given schedules. Rather than just random interludes to fill gaps.

Sky Sports News and Sky News' sports bullitens are 2 different products. Sky News gives a round-up of most sports news in under 10 minutes. Sky Sports News, on the other hand, provides a stretched out service focusing heavily on footy.

They should bring back a regular 30 minute buisiness programme like they used to have, before they scrapped their unique programming for generic, repetative rolling news presentation.



I also never watch sportsline. If they are going to do an in depth sports programme, perhaps they should broadcast from the Sky Sports studios instead, a change in scenery would be nice (not everything presented from the same news desk).
