I don't know if you realise but that particular feed links to old news - it's about the possibility of hunting being banned, a ban which actually came into effect earlier this year. Don't know if this makes any difference.

You sure you could watch a RM File in QT? Correct me if I'm wrong, but I understand that Real Media is proprietary and can not be played in QT.

My post was very badly worded sorry,

There used to be q quicktime version, apple used to promote it in Quicktime "Hot Picks" or something, seems like it has been dropped.


Does anyone know where there is a live stream of any news TV channel?

BBC News 24
BBC world
CNN
FOX NEWS

There used to be lots but I cant find any??

You are in China. The government of China has strict controls on what can and cannot be accessed from China. The BBC should be honored that they have been blocked; it says that Beijing feels uncomfortable with what they're saying.

Really, you won't get any useful live feeds where you live because the government won't let them in. Sorry, but that's the way it is.

And I know this could easily devolve into a PL thread, but it's just the truth.

Irrelevant of my location, it seems like there are no free live news TV feeds left, for anyone.
Correct me if I am wrong.
