Canadian broadcaster Shaw Media soft launched BC1 today, a new 24 hour regional news channel serving British Columbia.

“The first of its kind in British Columbia, Global News: BC 1 will provide viewers across the province with top local and regional stories, as well as national and international coverage delivered from a distinctly BC perspective,” said a Global BC1 news release.

The new channel joins Shaw’s British Columbia station, CHAN-DT.

The channel uses a mix of virtual and hard sets, varying by program type.

Shows such as “Top Story,” a talk show, use a real environment.
