Almost all the proceedings of the UK Supreme Court are streamed online via the Sky News website: in its first three months of operation, this stream was viewed 139,000 times by 73,000 unique monthly users. According to the UK Supreme Court, some 20,000 viewers tune in daily.
Unlike the US Supreme Court, the UK Supreme Court does not publish on its website the grounds of appeal or the parties’ rival ‘written skeleton arguments’. It does however provide brief details of the issues raised and cite the lower court’s decision.
In the US Supreme Court, the sittings are not streamed online, maybe they will follow the UK’s example soon…?
