International news channels are 24-hour news television channels which cover international news updates on their newscast programmes. Most international news channels are broadcast on cable, satellite or the Internet, and many have diversified their staff by broadcasting to multiple large language markets. Like other means of news broadcasting, international news channels have become an increasingly fierce market of competition for invested parties; governments, for example, have often established and funded international news channels in order to propagate an angle on the news of the day from the perspective, and within the confines, of the government's official view, often in competition against more established competitors based inside or outside the government's borders.[citation needed]

The following is a non-exhaustive list of news channels in alphabetical order regardless of language or country of origin.
