eMedia launched OpenNews as a response to Openview viewers’ high demand for a local news channel. Although eMedia already owns a 24-hour eNCA, the channel is exclusively produced for DStv and BBC World News (which is on both platforms) did not satisfy the viewers’ needs for local news. The channel was launched at 17:00 CAT and used to broadcast local news from 17:00 CAT to 23:00 CAT Monday to Friday. The broadcasting time was later reserved and now shows local news from 16:00 CAT until 19:30 CAT with the rest of the hours meant for international news partners such as TRT World, China Global Television Network, France 24 and some local documentaries.

On 5 August 2019, the channel, along with the news bulletins, was renamed news.

Later that year, the channel started showing Sports and used the Sport logo before becoming News & Sport. Thereafter the channel was also made available on Viu.

On 22 February 2022, a source named “TV with Thinus” reported that eMedia would shut down News and Sports by the end of March due to the result that it wasn’t viable.[3] eMedia confirmed on its Twitter page on 31 March 2022 that the network shut down at midnight on that day.
