    I had set this up as a season pass and noticed it was on past the world cup; I too am very happy as I have been watching it every day. The Raol Moat story was pretty interesting!!

    Thanks for the update...

    Perhaps our emails to FSC did help get this continuation!

    You're right about the Moat story - and that's a good example of where BBC America's news is a real letdown, no mention of it whatsoever. Unfortunately, that's not the first time that its limited focus has been so apparent, and I doubt it'll be its last. It's completely focused on detailed reports for a very restricted subset of world news such that key events are missed. Perhaps it's not surprising since BBC America as a channel has completely lost the plot and is now pretty much a joke, but that's for a different thread...

    BBC World carried the Moat story. We just don't have access to it - BBC World - at D*.

    Just a bump that Sky News HD is currently airing on FSC again, not Sky Sports News. DirecTV, forget Viacom, add this channel please!

    If you add a Roku to your system, you can get Sky News & BBC World 24/7...

    Fox News really does not want people in the us to have sky news as a full time channel.

    It's a great shame DirecTV won't add Sky news we also really need the BBC World News Channel. It's slowly finding its way onto other platforms, but not DirecTV.

    is it the looped sky news bulletin, or a live feed?

    They don't list those channels as being available on the Roku site...
