Can we exchange links/can you link my website?
Sorry, but due to the volume requests of recieved, we never exchange links or add links to stories by request.
Is my email private when I leave a comment?
Your email will not be published, but it is visible to the staff. A ‘real’ email address is not required to post, as long as the field is filled out the comment will be submitted
Can you add my story/event to your Facebook page please?
Although we will at times post events and news for charitable organizations at our own discretion, we generally don’t honour requests to post specific items on our Facebook page.
I have news/press release, can I submit it?
Yes! Please do, we would love to hear from you. All press releases must be submitted electronically via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, we are unable to accept them via any other method.
The videos play so slow, is there anything I can do ?
Yes, there is. The rate the videos play is dependent on your internet connection not our website. A simple little ‘trick’ you can do is pause the video for a few minutes and let it load prior to viewing it.
I noticed an error on this site [factual, broken link etc]
Okay, that’s embarrassing for us! Please contact us and report any errors of any kind.
Do you have any jobs available?
Unfortunately no. We are still a fairly new business and are not in the position to hire any additional staff at this time.

Can you put all the photos in a gallery on a disc and give them to me?
If you would like to use a few photos on your own website or Facebook page, please feel free to grab them off the website. If you want the entire set, non-watermarked versions and/or high resolution, those can be purchased via email.
You covered my event, can you please send me all the videos?
If you would like copies of the video we took for your own use, that can be purchased via email.
I don’t like the negative things can you please stop reporting them – OR – I don’t like the community stuff you post like kids concerts can you please stop posting them – OR – why is this news?
Some people like the harder hitting news, some people like community coverage and many like a combination of both. We aim to cover a wide range of things, and as such post a variety.
It also depends what is happening – if there is a mini-crime spree happening the content of that time will tend towards the negative, its a holiday the content will tend towards being more community orientated. Plus, it depends on what we have access to.
A wide variety of topics are covered on Bernews and we constantly aim to increase our offerings as time goes on. There is something to appeal to all tastes, so it’s best to just click on the stories you think may interest you, and ignore those that don’t.
Why are your live video feeds not HD?
Due to a combination of things – mostly due to the upload speeds we have access to in Bermuda. As we stream off a mobile connection most the time we are stuck with lower upload speeds so have to reduce the quality in order to stream the video in real time.
Occasionally we will stream off a landline connection, and you will see an increase in quality then. We are constantly working to upgrade our streaming capability, however in the meantime we stream using whatever method is available under the premise “something is better than nothing.”
Can you live stream my event?
Possibly – it depends on where it is, as some locations we cannot get a signal. If it’s a venue where we can ‘hook up’ to your internet, that greatly increases the chances we can stream it. Please send us an email with your specific query.
