Hi, I wonder if the the following sentence makes any sense:

A. Why didn't you tell me the news earlier?

B. I couldn't tell you until after watching / having watched the news.

Thanks in advance.

Nature04Until after

Yes, this combination is OK.

After "since" or "until" you can have "before" or "after", usually "since before" and "until after", not so much "since after" or "until before".

Nature04after watching / having watched

Just "watching" is enough. It's not usually necessary to use the forms with "having".

A. Why didn't you tell me the news earlier?

Usually this is for some new among family or friends, not for media broadcasts.

e.g.

You know that Jane is pregnant. Her baby is due next month.
I didn't know that! Why didn't you tell me earlier?
