Abstract

ABC Australia's News 24 website proclaims: "ABC News 24 provides around the clock coverage of news events as they break at home and abroad. Its news when you want it, on your platform - TV, mobile and online. "In this article, the stations content is analysed across 24 hours of its programming and compared with the same 24 hours of programming from BBC World. The content is tested for four key values: range of stories,· coverage of the big stories,' competence in going live to breaking stories; and ability to add value through analysis, debate and context. The examination of the data against these four key values enables an analysis of the nature of the service and assists in assessing whether or not it is providing an enriched and different offering in a busy 24/7 media landscape.
