TV2 Nyhetskanalen is Norway’s first round the clock news network, its operated by commercial broadcaster TV2 and has been on the air just over one year.

The above is a selection of the stations on-air look, but compared to the outstanding branding of Norway’s national broadcaster NRK, aren’t really that great.

And while I know Australia does have its own news network in Sky News, surely its time a free-to-air alternative launched, and if the ABC doesn’t get the funding to launch one, perhaps its time Seven launched a news channel, the name itself is crying out for some word play.. Seven 24?

Even New Zealand is about to get a free to air news channel at the end of the month.

– Thanks for the videos Hans!

  • well, you’re right; they can’t be compared to the NRK idents but for a 24 hour news channel, they are very nice.

  • They’re like a better version of the ITN News Channels idents (when it existed for about 5 minutes)

  • I like it…but even the Nords look like they have trouble speaking the language! haha.

    Seven could do 24/7News

  • Seven? They’d have to build up some journalistic standards first!

  • Nine could do a MSNBC rip off and go with MSNINE News or NINE MSNEWS

  • Reminds of a green-tinged BBC World

  • …do people actually realise that Sky News Australia is part owned by Sky, Seven and Nine? Basically, they’ve already got (part of) a news network each, so they won’t launch anything else without screwing Sky up.

    Despite that, it *is* more likely that Seven will create a half-a-channel for news: Nine has got trouble enough trying to create a half-a-channel for Channel Nine let alone anything else.
