I don't think Sky is available in this hemisphere, at least I haven't seen it on any US or Canadian DBS service. But as for BBC World, that CONTINUES to be inexcusable.
And on the content front, it was an excellent first day for AJA. Good, solid, reporting, no celebrity crap at all....just what they promised. If you take MSNBC and combine it with Fox and stir in a bit of HLN, you get everything AJA is NOT.
SkyNews has a good feed on Roku currently but international news channels come and go there. They had AJA until it went live on Directv then it was removed. Maybe a contract issue with Direct.
