As the television broadcast makes the change from a five- to a seven-day per week format, the five-minute news in English shifted from the previous 11:05 am time slot to a new afternoon broadcast time of 3:05 pm.
The online Yle news service will continue publishing up-to-date domestic news on the yle.fi/news pages.
In addition, Yle News will continue to broadcast daily English-language updates on the FM airwaves on Yle Mondo and Yle Radio 1.
All TV and radio broadcasts can also be accessed from Yle’s online service, Areena.
The English-language news service from Yle reports on Finnish domestic news, keeping both residents and visitors informed on national and local concerns throughout Finland.
Yle’s English language TV news coverage began in 1999 during Finland's first EU Presidency.
