CNA – Channel NewsAsia,
CNA – Channel NewsAsia, is a Singapore multinational news channel owned by the country’s national public broadcaster Mediacorp. It broadcasts free-to-air domestically in Singapore and internationally as a pay television channel to 29 territories across the Asia-Pacific.
The network has been positioned as an alternative to Western-based international media in presenting news from “an Asian perspective”. It is run by Mediacorp News Pte Ltd, a subsidiary of Singapore’s media conglomerate Mediacorp Pte Ltd.
CNA’s programs are transmitted into two separate broadcast feeds:
Domestic – the channel’s official feed providing 24-hour news, talk and lifestyle coverage. The Domestic feed also contains Singapore-only content, particularly during programme breaks. They include locally targeted advertisements, Mediacorp promos, sports footage limited by rights agreements with international sporting organisations, and the national anthem Majulah Singapura every 06:00 SST. CNA is available to Singapore viewers via over-the-air, StarHub TV, Singtel TV, and Mediacorp’s over-the-top streaming service meWATCH.
International – almost identical to the Domestic feed, but also provides more internationally-oriented content during programme breaks and annual English commentary coverage of Singapore’s National Day Parade every 9 August. Most cable and satellite systems carry the International feed in Asia and via livestreaming on CNA’s YouTube channel.
