Covering America

In the week that America has witnessed the inauguration of President Obama, we explore how the World Service and World News Channel are distributed in North America.

A listener in Toronto who is reluctant to pay to see the News channel as a live online stream is concerned that this may limit the potential audience for BBC news - we hear from the BBC about the different ways it is possible to access radio and TV from the World Service in North America.
