Breaking News : Al Jazeera English gets I&B nod to beam in India
Advertisement
#1
Al Jazeera has finally got the licence to launch the channel in India. The Information and Broadcasting Ministry has granted the broadcasting licence last week, which will enable Indian audiences to view the channel that is known for offering a slant to news that is different from the western style of presentation.

The decision paves way for the cable and satellite companies in India to add the channel to their line-up.

"This is an exciting breakthrough that has been in the works for several years, and we are extremely pleased that Al Jazeera English's groundbreaking news and programming will soon be available in India," Al Jazeera English MD Al Anstey said on the website.

"We know there is a great demand for our content. Through our dedicated resources in India, Al Jazeera is already presenting important stories from India to our global audience in more than 100 countries,” he added.

The company is expecting to reach to over 115 million households in India. "With the prospect of reaching an estimated 115 million households in India, this important market will be significant as we continue to expand our global reach,” India region distribution head Diana Hosker said.

Al Jazeera English currently has a bureau in New Delhi, headed by Anmol Saxena.

Saxena said, "With India's increasing engagement in world affairs and strong interest in international events, we are certain that Al Jazeera English will have a substantial following throughout the country."
