Al Jazeera International (AJI) coming soon to UBI WORLD TV

From tomorrow (Wednesday October 18) a promo of AJI will commence on CH02

AJI launches worldwide mid Novemeber, and will be part of the UBI English service and available in the WTV Basic and Plus packages.

AJI is not exclusive to UBI, but we are currently the only platform known to have taken it in Australia.

AJI is the world’s first English-language news channel to be headquartered in the Middle East. The channel will provide both a regional voice and a global perspective to a potential world audience of over one billion English speakers

News management will rotate around broadcasting centres in Doha, London, Washington, D.C. and Kuala Lumpur "following the sun".

AJI will broadcast factual programming including news features and analysis, documentaries, live debates, current affairs, business and sport, It will not have the usual Anglo-American worldview.

Also running on NSS5 NZ beam I believe they will also screen it in Australia when they flip the Australian Transponders on.

Why would they bother turning the Australian beam on from NSS5 or is this a slight case of Mr Apsattv with sour grapes against UBI.

because jaremt if you were paying attention you will know they were always planning a service to broadcast in Australia as well as New Zealand.

They have channels wanting to broadcast to NZ and Australia who don't want the very high costs charged by other operators.

The Al-Jazeera International network has set a launch date of Nov. 15, although it's still not clear whether anybody in the United States will be able to see it.

The English-language offshoot of the influential Arab network Al-Jazeera will begin operations at 7 a.m. ET out of its Doha, Qatar headquarters, the network announced on Tuesday. The network operates with four main offices, in Doha, London, Washington and Kuala Lumpur.

The network missed its target launch of last spring, and after that executives said it didn't make sense to begin during the summer months, when viewership is down.

Al-Jazeera International has not announced any agreements with cable or satellite systems in the United States to carry it. Negotiations are ongoing, and spokesman Marc Smrikarov said agreements will be announced before launch.

Al-Jazeera International should reach its goal of being available to between 30 million and 40 million homes worldwide by launch, he said.

Al-Jazeera International is billed as the first global English-language news network headquartered in the Middle East. Its executives have promised to cover the news from a different perspective, and reverse the information flow from the developing world to the West.

"We will extend the Al-Jazeera spirit into the English-speaking world," said Nigel Parsons, director of Al-Jazeera International.

When it hits the airwaves, the network will broadcast 24 hours, with 12 daily hours of live news accompanied by another 12 hours of interview programs, features and analysis, the network said in a prepared release.

Al-Jazeera's Arabic-language channel, which marks its 10th anniversary on Wednesday, has clashed repeatedly with Washington, which says its exclusive broadcasts of Osama bin Laden speeches show an anti-American bias. Its freewheeling newscasts have overshadowed state-run TV stations across much of the Arab world, leading some countries to close Al-Jazeera's bureaus.

Outside America, the station plans to compete with CNN International and BBC World, the two chief English-language satellite news channels. The new station will be headquartered in Doha and operate broadcast newsrooms in London, Washington and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

The station says its research shows some of the world's one billion English speakers, including Americans, thirst for news from a non-Western perspective.

The ever-contentious Middle East will be its specialty. And the news, including coverage of Israel, will be served up from an Arab perspective, Al-Jazeera executives have said.

English Al-Jazeera arrives this month

[Linked Image]

15th November 2006, 15:42 WST

Australians will be able to watch Middle Eastern broadcaster Al-Jazeera's new English-language channel before the end of the month.

Al-Jazeera English, whose Arabic parent network achieved notoriety for airing videos of al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden, will begin broadcasting at 1am (AEDT) on Thursday.

But Australians will have to wait a week or two before being able to view the new station, to be carried here by Sydney-based multicultural digital satellite broadcaster UBI World TV.

UBI World TV expects to start screening the channel later this month.

Al-Jazeera English, previously named Al-Jazeera International, has recruited a number of well-known Western journalists, including veteran BBC interviewer David Frost.

The channel's headquarters are in Doha, Qatar, and it has three other broadcasting centres in Kuala Lumpur, London and Washington, as well as 20 other bureaux.

The English-language station, originally expected to launch in 2005, will broadcast news features and analysis, documentaries, debates, current affairs, business and sport.

UBI World TV, which claims more than 200,000 viewers in Australia, offers its subscribers TV and radio stations in eight different languages.

"Our philosophy is to bring as many voices from around the world as we can to the Australian audience, providing a broad sweep of analysis and opinion on events," the firm's chief executive Sam Bilge said.
