Sky News is a famous TV news channel providing 24 hour news coverage including the latest breaking news. Currently broadcasting from a news centre in London, the channel provides domestic and international coverage to audiences in the UK as well as around the globe. Sky News started broadcasting on 5 February 1989 as part of the then four-channel Sky Television service. Sky News provides an hourly news radio service to multiple radio networks in the UK. Although the station is targeted at the UK and Ireland, it is carried around the world on a number of services, particularly being favoured by expatriates who want to keep up-to-date with the latest news from home. The channel currently has seven UK bases each with their own correspondents, but the channel can also call upon a wide range of resources and global bureaux provided by its parent company NewsCorp.
