I think the program is dedicated to Sky's foreign viewers, Its at a time when many of the foreign viewers will be awaking (News for the World, not World news for the UK)

I Sky+ it out of curiosity, it wasn't bad, except for Michael Watkins. He is the most dull and unremarkable presenter in Sky's vast array of presenters. I can't imagine waking up to him, he's more likely to put people back to sleep.



There also wasn't any business news coverage, except for a brief glimpse of the Asian stock markets.

I too share the frustrations of eagleeye, I wont be watching at that time. And I'm a potential viewer.



Perhaps, it's a long shot, it's a prelude to a prime-time world news?
