Several ABC News programs are broadcast daily on OSN News, a service consisting of three 24-hour satellite channel exclusively offering American news programs from ABC, NBC, PBS and MSNBC to U.S. expatriates and other viewers abroad, primarily geared towards an audience in the Middle East and North Africa. The network is available on digital cable and satellite in Europe, Northeast Asia and the Middle East, however, cable providers in Europe are currently unable to carry the channels due to unsolved rights issues. It is also available online on ABC News' website.
In the United Kingdom, ABC World News Tonight airs daily at 1:30 a.m. local time on the BBC News Channel, which itself may be simulcast on BBC One or BBC Two during the overnight hours. Commercials are not presented during the broadcast as the BBC's services in the U.K. are financed through license fees. ABC and the BBC also share video segments and reporters as needed for news coverage in their respective countries.
In Australia, Sky News Australia airs daily broadcasts of World News Tonight (at 10:30 a.m.) and Nightline (at 1:30 a.m.) as well as weekly airings of 20/20 (on Wednesdays at 1:30 p.m., with an extended version at 2:00 p.m. on Sundays) and occasionally Primetime (at 1:30 p.m. on Thursdays, with extended edition at 2:00 p.m. on Saturdays). Coincidentally, that country's public broadcaster, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, operates its own unrelated news division that is also named ABC News. The U.S. ABC News maintains a content sharing agreement with the Nine Network, which also broadcasts GMA domestically in the early morning before its own breakfast program.
In New Zealand, ABC World News was broadcast daily at 5:10 p.m. and at again at 11:35 p.m. As with the BBC in the U.K., TVNZ 7 (owned by Television New Zealand) aired the program commercial-free, until the channel ceased operations on June 30, 2012.
