The on-air schedule also includes flagship political programs AM Agenda and Afternoon Agenda as well as popular evening programs Credlin and Alan Jones.

“Australians’ demand for credible, live and accurate information has never been greater and I am pleased we can continue to provide regional viewers with access to our quality news, weather, sport and analysis from Australia’s best commentators on our new channel, Sky News Regional.

“We’ve listened to our regional audiences and adjusted the programming schedule to reflect their feedback, which includes our new live breakfast program, Sky News Breakfast, the return and live broadcast of The Bolt Report, plus more of Paul Murray Live and the continuation of its regional Our Town series which puts a spotlight on a different regional town each month.”

  1. Hello and good morning, and sorry for the bother.
    I did an auto channel scan this morning on our tv, but the SCA channel 56 Sky Sews did not appear. Do you have any idea what I need to do to get this channel?

    Many thanks and I hope you can help. Cheers from Don. Devonport, Tasmania.

    • Tassie appears to be left off the Sky News Regional broadcasting map with no channel availabe!

  2. Seems an odd choice, to leave Tasmania out of the service area, given seats down here could very well decide the election. You’d think we’d be precisely the population that the unbiased news would want to broadcast directly to.

  3. Always watched Channel 83!!! Now NO channel 83 . Apparently Tasmania doesn’t matter!!!

  4. Can you confirm that TAS will be getting Sky News as it has dropped out from channel 83., and if so…when

  5. Tasmania left off !!!
    Very upset watch 83 regularly rely on Credlin etc for good journalism

  6. I am also (or was) a regular viewer of Sky News On Win. The rubbish they replaced it with on Channel 83 is of no use to me. This sort of stuff we get on on Internet if we wish. By the sound of it Sky News Regional has been cancelled in Tasmania and Western Australia. Come on SCA this is 2021.
    Ron

  7. Very disappointing for Tassie ,as far as I’m concerned Sky news is the only outlet that really made a positive difference to viewing content and quality,the rest of the lineup is mostly garbage,hope this can be resolved soon.

  8. tas ….always left off the map..understand good things come to those who wait ..and tas needs ya support private investors gobbling it up

  9. Not Happy!
    I was always changing the tv in the work lunch room to channel 83.
    So everyone can be informed.
    The only news station with actual news!
    Please give Tasmania an option to watch. Really missing you all ❤️

  10. This bullshit, why isn’t sky available in Tasmania, the utter dribble and crap on the other channels is unwatchable and the ABC is complete Communist mind wash bullshit

  11. Sky News’ s platform was clearly right wing and some presenters more so than others but it was an alternative to the left leaning ABC. Discerning viewers are capable of recognising when TV presenters go over the top in their commentary. Besides some of the extreme stuff was entertaining, at times down right hilarious.

  12. I don’t have any idea what’s happened to Sky News I would like to know what is happening. How do we get it back.
