News Only TV Channel

This category refers to the existence of 24-hour news channels. This sort of only news TV channel strengthens the broadcaster’s public value and enables the audience to receive quickly and contextualised information, which makes it easier to follow an in depth and immediate analysis and media coverage of the latest news

In 2019, the Austrian TV station Puls4 (part of the Germany based ProSiebenSat.1 Group) launched the 24-hour news channel Puls24. What may seem late by international standards is, however, an innovation for the small Austrian market. Puls24 sees itself as a counterweight to the public broadcaster ORF. Its claim is to contextualize all news, i.e. to comment on and/or analyze it. From the very beginning, the news channel has also set the focus on digital video content, which is published on the associated web portal
