DW News is a global English-language news and information programme from German public international broadcaster Deutsche Welle (DW), established in summer 2015.
DW News was launched on 22 June 2015 and superseded other international DW programs like the Journal. The 24-hour service aims to establish a German counterpart to international news channels from other countries like BBC World News or France 24. The service is transmitted worldwide via satellite.
In America, DW News aired at most of the hours on its channels, and in some areas (like Northern California) broadcast over the air via public media broadcasts. A 30-minute program similar to the Journal is available on many stations that are PBS members. The 30-minute program is also available nationwide on Link TV, as well as on YouTube as DW English and DW Documentary. The DW Livestream has available and can be viewed on the official DW website. In Australia it is broadcast live on ABC News.
