Up to date news and gossip 24/7

What I appreciate about Sky News items is the length of each item that are not too long. Also, for further reading on a particular news story, there are easy to use highlighted links taking me to similar topics. This is especially the case for Brexit, World News and Politics. Also the short videos bring the news stories to life on my iPhone and iPad.

Sky News is so much more interesting and engaging than any other news app and their reporters get right to the scene of a natural disaster, for example, when others sit in the safety of their studio. An example is Yemen and Syria where their foreign correspondents are literally with the soldiers on the front line. This makes their reporting credible which is a value I think has been lost to other mediocre news sources.

Sky News app is easy to use too with so much choice that I could spend hours and hours reading different news stories. This is good providing a breadth and depth to the headline stories of day. If like me you like credible and accurate news then Sky News app is for you.

Best News channel by a mile

Sky News is one on its own. Its news is always up-to-date and accurate. It is never biased. Everyone, whether reporting from far-flung areas of the globe or nearer to home, works as a team to bring us the best, detailed, accurate news stories. The reporters go into really dangerous and risky places, so that we can see almost first-hand, precisely what is happening everywhere in the world. Sky News is an outstanding, impressive, news channel with extraordinary graphics and slick, faultless presentation.

Love Sarah Mee’s contributions. Also fully appreciate the dangers incurred by the reporters. The ones relating to the hospitals in Bergamo and Naples entailed considerable risks to the reporter, sound man and cameraman, as well as those in China where the Sky team was trying to enter premises to find out the source of the Coronavirus.

All news

I find Sky News trustworthy and often reports news as it happens. I also find it to be unbiased. The various analyses I have found helpful although I think some are rather verbose. I sometimes wonder, however, if it has been giving a fair report, on times, of the government’s handling of the Pandemic given that it even took the scientists by surprise. No government has had to handle such a national emergency since WW2 and I think there has been more emphasis on the negative and less of the positive. For example the Track, Test and Trace staff must be feeling demoralised because all they are getting thrown at them is complete negativity and yet they are working the clock round. Also the spotlight on ‘Killer in the Care Homes’ seemed fair enough but I have great sympathy for the staff of those cars homes that have been managed well during the crisis yet there has been no spotlight on those. Is it because bad news is always more entertaining? So, come on, let’s get the balance right!!!
