News is a crucial part of everyone’s lives and knowing about daily world affairs keeps us right up to date. Hence, it is essential to follow a news channel covering all the important news happening in and around the country. Moreover, having a region-specific news channel helps people of other regions know what is going on worldwide as well as market activity.

CNA is one such channel that shows news from the Asian perspective. It helps viewers across 29 territories in Asia and Australia understand Asia as a whole (including India China News). The channel also offers its live news bulletin through its domestic live radio station.

CNA also has an online portal that live streams world news. Viewers can use any of these channels to learn about daily news or current affairs at any time.

If you want to watch CNA’s journalism live, you can only use live streaming services. One such service in Australia is Flash which gives you the comfort of accessing news and any location.

CNA has a domestic feed and an international feed. The channel broadcasts news, lifestyle coverage, award-winning documentaries, popular current affairs programmes, major issues affecting Southeast Asia, and talk shows in the domestic feed. This feed also contains content and news from Singapore.

The international feed is almost similar to the domestic feed but has opt-out options during specific coverage. You can stream this international feed on most Asian satellite and cable systems along with other regions.

Apart from live streaming services like Flash, viewers can also see the snippets of breaking news coverage on CNA’s official YouTube channel and mobile app.
