ABC news service on Stratos

ABC news service on Stratos

Stratos is pleased to advise that we have completed negotiations with Australia Network, which is part of ABC, to provide a late afternoon news feed direct from Australia.

This will commence as of this coming Monday (January 21) at 5:30 and will run against the Prime news service.

Initially this will be a Monday to Friday service, but depending on interest and audience we may time shift it to a 7 day a week service.

This is a significant new addition to our international news line up, and comes from one of the region's leading and prestigious broadcasters.

Please note we will be only carrying their news, and not other programming available on this service because of copyright issues.
