Al Jazeera English coming to Bell TV

Al Jazeera English, the 24-hour English-language news and current affairs channel from the capital of Qatar will be available on Bell TV for $3 per month as part of the “International News 2” package. From this unique position, Al Jazeera English is destined to be the English-language channel of reference for Middle Eastern events, balancing the current typical information flow by reporting from the developing world back to the West and from the southern to the northern hemisphere. The channel aims to give voice to untold stories, promote debate, and challenge established perceptions. With broadcasting centres in Doha, Kuala Lumpur, London and Washington DC and supporting bureaux worldwide, the channel will set the news agenda, bridging cultures and providing a unique grassroots perspective from under-reported regions around the world to a potential global audience of over one billion English speakers. The station broadcasts news, current affairs, features, analysis, documentaries, live debates, entertainment, business and sport.

Building on Al Jazeera Arabic channel's ground breaking developments in the Arab and Muslim world that have changed the face of news within the Middle East, Al Jazeera English is part of a growing network that is now extending this fresh perspective from regional to global through accurate, impartial and objective reporting.

“AJE increases customer choice and the diversity of voices for international news services offered to Canadians,” said Chris Frank, VP Programming. “It provides a valuable source of world news from a Middle Eastern perspective and is yet another example of how Bell TV continues to bring new and exciting content to our customers.”

It will be offered on channel 516 and bundled with ichannel as part of our new International News 2 specialty package*.

AJE joins the best selection and variety from Canadian and foreign broadcasting news services including CTV, CBC, Global, CNN, NBC, CBS, FOX and ABC. For more information on Bell TV and Bell TV theme packs, please contact us here
