BBC World Service Newscast

Stations not wishing or able to carry complete programs or hours of BBC World Service content may utilize the "Newscasts Only" service from APM and the BBC World Service. Stations may carry any and all "top of the hour" and “bottom of the hour” newscasts available 24 hours a day. There is a separate carriage fee structure for stations that carry Newscasts only.

BBC Newscasts are part of the regular 24x7 BBC World Service feed available via ContentDepot. There is no unique "Newscasts Only" feed. Stations must subscribe to each of the live stream(s) for the hours in which they wish to air the newscasts.

Broadcast Rights

BBC Newscasts are available to all American Public Media affiliate stations for broadcast. BBC Newscasts must be aired live; no tape delaying or editing allowed. Stations paying only for BBC Newscasts service have no rights to broadcast other content in the feeds and must contact APM if they desire full access. (Conversely, stations already subscribing to the full BBC World Service package do not need to pay for the "BBC Newscasts" service and may carry newscasts as desired.)
