GLOBAL NEWS LIVE
NOW UPDATED WITH MORE INTERNATIONAL NEWS CHANNELS
We enjoy watching global news live streams from international sites. It’s interesting to watch world news from the perspective of another country or culture. Much of the world news from the USA does not cover the material that would be covered in this list of live news outlets. And all of these sites are high-quality, reliable and in English. Although there are some very interesting unsecured sites from abroad, each of the listed sites has to be considered a secure site to be featured on this page.
NEWS LIVE FROM ASIA
Japan’s NHK Live News in English primarily covers Japan and other Asian countries. This is one of our favorite sites in general. It has a lot of great shows about life in Japan, traveling the country, and great cultural experiences.
KBS WORLD TV is a news and family entertainment channel. The shows are broadcast shortly after their Korean broadcast day. This channel produces a lot of great material with subtitles in many languages. This website is a great source to learn more about Asian culture.
DD India is India’s 24×7 international news channel from the country’s Public Service Broadcaster. They have a YouTube channel in English. The channel includes daily world news, national news, current events and discussions.
This site from India gives us occasional trouble with the live news stream, although the videos on demand work fine. Pretty busy visually. A lot going on in the screen in this site.
NEWS LIVE FROM AFRICA
NEWS LIVE FROM EUROPE
Poland In (Poland)
Poland In has a live news streaming site that is not available in the USA. However, they also have a live news channel on YouTube.
NEWS LIVE FROM THE MIDDLE EAST
NEWS LIVE FROM WESTERN ASIA/PERSIA
PressTV is interesting because it is from Iran and gives a perspective that is not often available in the USA. It is not clear to me if the FBI has shut down this website or not. You may have to search a bit. I’m not sure if the links are being changed to circumvent the site shutdown, however I am clearly watching news in English in 2022.
PTV has a live English news stream from Pakistan. The website includes a comprehensive overview of global and national news channels. Recently, I have not had a lot of success with the English News.
NEWS LIVE FROM NORTH AMERICA
Global News has a high quality news stream from Canada. The link above is for Toronto news, but you can click on the dropdown box on the streaming screen and select other regions of Canada.
VOA (Voice of America) has a lot of video clips of world news events. There are daily news events, special reports and analysis. Currently, the title heading includes US News, Ukraine, Press Freedome, Covid-19 Pandemic, China and Iran.
CNN has an international news site, but it looks like the live video requires a login after a few minutes. There is a lot of world news, however there is not a lot of video. This is not a great site for free world news.
