Do you guys get the American version of CNN there?
No. During the election we got a lot of Wolf Blitzer et al. Thankfully that's all finished now.
They recently changed CNN International's format. We get a lot more zooming, flying graphics shooting around the TV screen now. I think that is more "american" style. Also they now have something called the iDesk. i for international... duh. More flying graphics and off-kilter angled videos and half the screen is taken up with text and more logos.
CNN sucks more now than they did before. I watch more Al Jazeera or Euronews.
It seems to me in my travels; I have watched excerpts of CNN and the other news networks but not in the entire format viewed in the US.
I've seen CNN headline news overseas, but don't remember seeing anything else.
I think that is what is called "CNN international". In general over here I miss monothematic channels such as HGTV, or spcial channels like Bravo TV.
We do, well I do... Very boring though
Probably on cable or sky/freeview? Tend to be a BBC fan myself, but wouldn't mind a bit of CNN.
How about BBC and CNN joint-launch a worldwide news channel? That'd be cool (if a bit Anglo-Saxon centric, lol).
The CNN we get in the UK is CNN International. We tend to get a mixture of shows including iDesk, The Situation Room, Larry King Live and a few others. It's not the same CNN that's broadcast in the USA. Sadly, we also get Fox News in some form or another.
Fox news is rated number one news channel in a few other countries besides the U.S.A. Fox has more views at 3AM than CNN has at 9PM. The Factor is rated number one and the rerun of the Factor, the rerun, is rated 4th among all cable news shows.
I thought it was the information desk.
