Here are the top 10 most popular news channels of 2013.
This is an Indian channel that provides news to the more than one billion people of India. This is the most popular source for news in the country.

This channel was established by the Saudi Royal family in 2003 and as well as showing in Saudi Arabia, it is also watched in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates and other Middle Eastern countries.
This is a multi-language European news channel based in France and although it started off only giving a European perspective of the news, now that it gives a broader view, it is also being watched by countries outside of Europe.
The initials MSNBC stand for the Micro Soft and National Broadcasting Corporation and it was once known only as a political news channel. More recently it has expanded to incorporate world news as well as sport and entertainment, which is making it more popular.
This channel which is solely devoted to world news is based in Doha, Qatar and has started to become popular all around the world.

This channel is part of the Fox Entertainment Group of companies and is watched by millions of viewers in the United States alone. Add to that its worldwide coverage through satellite and cable and it is able to acquire third place on this international list of news broadcasters.
With its initials standing for Cable News Network, it is exactly that. Established in 1980, this was the first television network to report news 24 hours every day. Now known as a source for news throughout the world, it holds the number 2 position on this list.
BBC stands for British Broadcasting Corporation and it has been a source of world news globally, via radio, since before the days of Television. It is therefore probably no surprize that since the introduction of televised BBC world news in 1991 it quickly established itself as the most popular news channel.
