RT for me comes under the banner "watch with care" - interesting (usually) to view for short periods and can thought provoke against what is normally seen from mainstream anglophone mediums. However it's always worth remembering who is behind the channel and what its general agenda is. They certainly do a lot better job than China's CCTV which bores me crapless. France24 is fairly benign against other western media outlets, NHK world is informative without either being too stuffy (CCTV) or deliberately trying to provoke (probably down to the channel more being a promotional outlet of Japan itself rather than trying to proselytise). I'd say that RT's place on the Freeview EPG not far from BBC or Sky News has opened it to a wide UK audience. It's documentaries can be good though - they have a documentary channel but its not on the satellite used by Sky & Freesat.
