Or simply Newsworld as it's commonly called. The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation's all news channel. Available in Canada on Cable or satellite.

Launched on July 31, 1989. Newsworld's first year of bradcasting was experimental to say the least, sometimes retransmitting raw footage from camera crews in the field as it was being uplinked without any introduction or explanation (during the Oka Crisis for example).

Nowdays Newsworld broadcasts such shows as the fifth estate, The Passionate Eye, Rough Cuts, Politics, Undercurrents, and of course The National. Newsworld also produces about 12 hours of live news programming every weekday originating from studios in Halifax, Toronto, Winnipeg, Calgary, and Vancouver, local CBC studios throughout Canada, and bureaus throughout the world.

There is also a French language version called RDI headquartered in Montreal and a US cable channel Newsworld International which is a co-venture between the CBC and USA Networks.

Newsworld is also one of the only arms of the CBC that actually turns a profit.
