From January 2005 until October 2006, the NewsScape archive was in a pilot phase and had a limited recording schedule, collecting a small number of programs each day from five Los Angeles-area networks. Beginning in October 2006, the archive expanded its acquisition schedule to include nearly round-the-clock collection of programs on several networks, including US cable news channels. The archive has sustained a gradual pace of growth ever since, adding more foreign news outlets in recent years as well as other regional markets within the US. In addition, the collection acquires news coverage of major political events on an ad-hoc basis.
