The News Channel is a channel that allows you to read news. The channel updates frequently every day, and provides national and international news, as well as news on a variety of specific categories such as sports, arts/entertainment, business, science/health, and technology. There is a slide show option that goes through the news while showing you where it's happening on the globe. Often there will be a photo to go along with the news article. On June 27, 2013; the News Channel was permanently sent offline.
- Clicking on the cat on the loading page will reveal a helpful hint on using the channel. A similar feature can be found on the Photo Channel, however the cat is much more difficult to click.
