    America “news” channels are too narrow in focus. BBC App helps me see true world news – and less biased US news. Science, Health etc. categories also allow more than political news!

    BBC used to be the standard for actual journalism...they have digressed to tabloid level editorialism...unfortunate!!!!
  • Worldwide reporting

    As an American, I really enjoy reading the BBC’s articles from around the world. American news is often centered on the US, so it can be hard to know what is going on abroad. Furthermore, I like hearing an outside point of view.

    Their perspective on America and Canada is particularly interesting. American news seems to be too focused on politics and personalities.

    Best news available - covering the world, without the contentiousness and unfortunate bias seen in the states. So grateful for the availability and the worldwide content!
