Transport Layer:Transmission Control Protocol (TCP)
Application Layer:Battle.net v1 TCP Messages (SID)
Message Id:0x46
Message Name:SID_NEWS_INFO
Direction:Server to Client
Used By:Diablo II, Diablo II Lord of Destruction
Warcraft III Reign of Chaos, Warcraft III The Frozen Throne
Message Format:
(does not include protocol header)
 (UINT8) Number of entries
(UINT32) Last logon timestamp
(UINT32) Oldest news timestamp
(UINT32) Newest news timestamp

For each entry:
    (UINT32) Timestamp
    (STRING) News


This packet contains news from Battle.net. Timestamps are in C/Unix format, biased for UTC.

Multiple separate news messages can be received. These should be treated the same as if one message was sent with several news entries.

If the 'Timestamp' field for an entry is zero, then that entry is the message of the day (and not a news entry in the normal respect).
