    The problem with rolling news is that it’s just constant repeat after repeat of just reporting, with no actual debate over the issues. If they can find a balance of news and debate, it will be good to watch.

    Like stupid segments on body language?

    Well that's enough for me, I'm not wasting any more of my Sunday watching this dross, though Sugar made me LOL.

    Yeah, you scurry on back to the news channels that say everything you want them to say, with no alternative opinion to hurt your feelings.

    What's your problem with people 'voting with their wallets'?

    Just tuned in... is this a straight news channel or "infotainment" ? Some mildy-annoying Ozzie guy on atm.

    Seems like a US-format channel with newsreaders/presenters as celebrities. Which is also the YouTube format :p

    e: LOTS of adverts.

    No, because I’ll still watch all the news channels. Vince won’t watch this any more.

    There's not actually been much in the way of news in nearly 3 hours.

    Err excuse me. Alan said the Apprentice (thanks to hard work from the BBC) will be back Jan 2022.

    Must say I'm not a fan of this guy but I'm keen to see some of the others in the line-up. I think it was a mistake to kick off with him tbh.

    Early days so willing to give it a chance and see how it goes. I hope they get some of those they disagree with on board for proper debates and hear them out rather than turning into an echo chamber.

    Are they seriously bringing a story about a women from TikTok complaining about Corden mocking Asian food?

    Yeah I've got a lot of time for Andrew Neil, so it can't be all bad :p Will periodically check it out. This guy isn't doing anything for me, tho.

    e: In fact I'd go as far as to say he's annoying as hell :p

    This is high level GB news!

    Or just background TV for chavs (more likely).

    I mean it is the channel launch night... that might not be reflective of the usual Sunday night programming.
