ETV World is ETV's news/talk service, with live global newscasts, an international perspective on U.S. news, and South Carolina news/talk, including live gavel-to-gavel coverage of the South Carolina Legislature from January through June of each year.
Live newscasts in English come to ETV World from around the world, including DW-TV (Germany's version of public TV), the BBC, and NHK from Japan. The Nightly Business Report is seen exclusively on this channel, as are lively mini-magazines on life, culture, and the arts in Europe. Charlie Rose finds a daytime home on this channel, as does Tavis Smiley.
ETV news/talk programs also appear on this channel, including State House Today, The Big Picture, Connections, Carolina Business Review, and archival profiles from ETV's vault on notable Carolinians from Frank Howard to James Dickey.
ETV World broadcasts the West Coast feed of PBS, including programs that may not have appeared on ETV at all during late night programming. This service, a three hour delay of the east coast schedule, is known as "PBS Rewind" and is also used each weekend for viewers who may have missed a favorite program.
