BBC News 24:
The link to this stream isn't always advertised on the BBC News web site, but it appears to stream 24/7. YMMV.
BBC News Live streams
One of these is often used (though not always) to stream the news live as it's broadcast every day, and if there's a special event / important news event they sometimes use two or more of the streams to broadcast footage or reports. Sometimes they link to these streams on the BBC News site, sometimes they don't. When the daily news bulletins are broadcast on BBC One, they're simulcast on (usually) the now4 stream, then made available on-demand later.

These on-demand streams are available to view approximately 30-40 minutes after the end of the programme's live broadcast, as obviously their automated encoding system has to finish encoding and upload the file onto their streaming servers for public access.
I doubt that anybody will be able to get the Real-format links to work on their device, as the last version of Real Player for PPC doesn't seem to support these latest Helix-based streams properly, and TCPMP doesn't support RTSP streaming (grr!) but they're there anyway, because many may prefer the (slightly higher) video quality of the Real stream over the WMP stream when viewing on a PC.

These video feeds are scraped, remixed and mobile-friendly versions of the pages produced from the BBC's original, mobile-unfriendly pages, thanks to Ben Metcalfe's ongoing project. An OPML feed is also available if you view the directory listing (it's at the top), and more information on the project is available at the root of the site: http://bbcnews.benmetcalfe.com.

Pipeline Feed 4:
These stream DO work, they just take absolutely ages to begin to buffer. I've waited upwards of a minute sometimes, but when they do start they run alright. Sometimes they may time out and give you an error, in which case close WMP and click on the link again. If you don't have a very good connection, it may buffer a lot. Also, like the BBC News feeds, because they're not strictly encoded for low-CPU, mobile handset playback, they may stutter, jump, lose audio/video sync occasionally or slow your device right down when you play them back. The Pipeline feeds are particular culprits and CPU hogs, but the BBC streams aren't much better. Just something we all have to put up with for the time being!
Thanks for checking this page out... This list is far from complete. I will be adding more to it as time goes by, and I'll make it look a lot prettier eventually - so bookmark it and check back every so often for new stuff. :)
