Quick User Guide
TheGlobalnewsnet.com is a one-stop Gateway Site enabling English language speakers to access a comprehensive and balanced selection of news and news-related materials in English from around the world. It also provides speakers of the major European languages with access to a wide range of printed news sources and media coverage from their own countries.
We have created a site that is uncluttered and easy to use with no fancy graphics or distracting frills. The site should work on most internet enabled devices, including devices with smaller screens, i.e. laptops, tablet computers and smart phones.
All our NEWS and TV links are in the public domain and freely available. We do not use TV aggregation sites which can try to install trackers or third party software. This means that on our site you will normally have to click or tap PLAY in the TV window.
Most of our TV and radio links require Flash and currently will not work on the iPhone/iPad, but please feel free to experiment. Not all live channels broadcast 24/7, but schedules are usually indicated.
Some of the links do contain advertising, but we always try to avoid sites where this material becomes too cluttered and intrusive for proper enjoyment. We will occasionally insert discrete and limited amounts of advertising on our introductory pages to cover the costs of this site, but never on the links themselves.
All TV channels have a Full Screen option, usually shown in the Menu Bar at the bottom. Where this is not displayed, double clicking the Play Window or right clicking to Zoom will usually work.
Some archive programs and certain live transmissions on non UK sites may be geographically restricted for copyright reasons. This applies particularly to Scandinavian and Italian channels. Similarly, BBC and ITV domestic channels may not work outside the UK.
Several channels only offer a limited live service or are catch-up only.
On some TV channels offering both live and catch-up options you will need to click LIVE in the Menu Bar to obtain the web stream.
