Newsworld International started its life in 1994 as a division of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, with a Canadian partner called Power Corp.  It was sold in 2000 to Barry Diller and USA Networks.  They sold to Vivendi Universal in 2001.  Programming has continued to be supplied from the CBC in Toronto by a small staff of anchors and a collection of newscasts from international sources.  

The CBC has its own 24 hour news network in Canada called Newsworld, but it's a separate operation.  A few Newsworld shows air on NWI but not many.  CBC's flagship newscast "The National" airs several times a day as part of the international newscast lineup.
