Al Jazeera English (AJE) is an international 24-hour English-language news and current affairs TV channel headquartered in Doha, Qatar. It is the sister channel of the Arabic-language Al Jazeera.

The station broadcasts news features and analysis, documentaries, live debates, current affairs, business, technology, and sports. The station claims to be the first global high-definition television network.[1]

Al Jazeera English is the world's first English-language news channel headquartered in the Middle East.[2] The channel aims to provide both a regional voice and a global perspective to a potential world audience of over one billion English speakers who don't have an Anglo-American worldview.[3] Instead of being run under central command, news management rotates around broadcasting centers in Doha, London and Washington D.C. Complete news bulletins from Kuala Lumpur stopped on 30 September 2010 and have been replaced by news from Doha, with news inserts from Kuala Lumpur ending in early 2011. Al Jazeera English is one of the few foreign media outlets to have agencies in Gaza and Harare.

The network's stated objective is "to give voice to untold stories, promote debate, and challenge established perceptions."[4]

Contents

Philosophy

Al Jazeera English has stated objectives of emphasizing news from the developing world, of "reversing the North to South flow of information" and of "setting the news agenda" (also the channel's slogan). Some observers, including media scholar Adel Iskandar, have commented that this focus can be seen, in the eyes of Western viewers, as casting Al Jazeera English as a global "alternative" news network, though the entire Al Jazeera brand has been heavily mainstreamed in many parts of the world.[5] Other Al Jazeera English slogans and catchphrases include: "All the News | All the Time", "Fearless Journalism" and "If it's newsworthy, it gets on air, whether it's Bush or Bin Laden". Al Jazeera's Code of Ethics mirrors some of these statements.[6] Award winning Creative teams shaped the English brand identity,[7] the on-air studios and its "EVERY ANGLE | EVERY SIDE" promotional positioning, led by Director of Creative, Morgan Almeida, "to extend the Arabic heritage in a language familiar to diverse global audiences".

Launch and reach

The channel was launched on 15 November 2006. It had aimed to begin global broadcasting in June 2006 but had to postpone its launch because its HDTV technology was not ready.[8][9] The channel was due to be called Al Jazeera International, but the name was changed nine months before the launch because "one of the Qatar-based channel's backers decided that the broadcaster already had an international scope with its original Arabic outlet."[10]

The channel had expected to reach around 40 million households, but it far exceeded that launch target, reaching 80 million homes.[11] As of 2009, Al Jazeera's English-language service can be viewed in every major European market, and is available to 130 million homes in over 100 countries via cable and satellite, according to Molly Conroy, a spokeswoman for the network in Washington.[12]

The channel is noted for its poor penetration in the American market, where it is carried by only one satellite service, and a small number of cable networks.[13] Al Jazeera English has begun a campaign to enter the North American market, including a dedicated website.[14] It became available to some cable subscribers in New York in August 2011, having previously been available as an option for some viewers in Washington DC, Ohio and Los Angeles.[15] It is readily available on most major Canadian television providers including Rogers and Bell TV after the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission approved the channel for distribution in Canada on 26 November 2009.[16][17]

In 2008, Al Jazeera English won the Golden Nymph award for Best 24-Hour News Program at the Monte Carlo Television Festival. The jurors singled out Nour Odeh, Al Jazeera's Gaza correspondent, for her bravery in reporting from the Gaza Strip. Al Jazeera English also received nominations in several other news categories, for example the Best News Documentary award for the report Inside Myanmar – The Crackdown.[18]

Al Jazeera English and Iran's state-run Press TV were the only international English-language television broadcasters with journalists reporting from inside both Gaza and Israel during the 2008–2009 Israel–Gaza conflict. Foreign press access to Gaza has been limited via either Egypt or Israel. However, Al Jazeera's reporters Ayman Mohyeldin and Sherine Tadros were already inside Gaza when the conflict began and the network's coverage was often compared to CNN's initial coverage from inside Baghdad in the early days of the 1991 Persian Gulf War.[19][20][21]

The channel may also be viewed online. It recommends online viewing either via Livestation, a free software (live, high quality), at its own website[22] (live, low quality), or at its channel on YouTube.[23] Although Al Jazeera English is produced in High Definition (HD), the output is converted to 14:9 SD similar to BBC World.[citation needed] Programs are shown on the Al Jazeera English YouTube channel in their original 16:9 format.

In addition to the above, Al Jazeera English runs various programmes that are either entirely non-recurrent or consist of just a limited number of parts (miniseries format).

International bureau

In addition to its four main broadcast centres, Al Jazeera English has 21 supporting bureaus around the world which gather and produce news. It also shares resources with its Arabic-language sister channel's 42 bureaus and is planning to add further bureaus, to be announced as they open.[26] After it began broadcasting in Canada in May 2010, the network announced plans to open, in June 2010, a Canadian bureau office in Toronto.[27][28] This is a significant difference from the present trend.

“The mainstream American networks have cut their bureaus to the bone.... They’re basically only in London now. Even CNN has pulled back. I remember in the ’80s when I covered these events there would be a truckload of American journalists and crews and editors, and now Al Jazeera outnumbers them all.... That’s where, in the absence of alternatives, Al Jazeera English can fill a vacuum, simply because we’re going in the opposite direction.”
-Tony Burman, Managing Director, AJE (qtd. in Adbusters[29])

Also Al Jazeera presenters can alternate between broadcast centres.

Recruitment

Veteran British broadcaster Sir David Frost joined Al Jazeera English[31] to host his show Frost Over the World.

Former BBC and CNN anchor Riz Khan, who previously had been the host of the CNN talk show Q&A, also joined. He hosts his shows Riz Khan and Riz Khan's One on One.

Former U.S. Marine Josh Rushing joined Al Jazeera in September 2005.[32] He had been the press officer for the United States Central Command during the 2003 Invasion of Iraq, and in that role had been featured in the documentary Control Room. When subsequently joining Al Jazeera, Rushing commented that "In a time when American media has become so nationalized, I'm excited about joining an organization that truly wants to be a source of global information...."[33] Rushing works from the Washington, D.C., broadcasting centre.

Former CNN and BBC news anchorwoman and award winning journalist Veronica Pedrosa also joined the team,[34] along with CNN producer James Wright, and Kieran Baker, a former editor and producer for CNN, who most recently was Acting General Manager, Communications and Public Participation for ICANN. On 2 December 2005, Stephen Cole, a senior anchor on BBC World and Click Online presenter, announced he was joining Al Jazeera International.[35]

The network announced on 12 January 2006 that former Nightline correspondent Dave Marash would be the co-anchor from their Washington studio. Marash described his new position as "the most interesting job on Earth."[36] On 6 February 2006, it was announced that the former BBC reporter Rageh Omaar would host the daily weeknights documentary series, Witness.[37]

The managing director for Al Jazeera English is Tony Burman, who replaced Nigel Parsons in May 2008.[38]

Availability

The channel is available in many countries,[39] mostly via satellite, sometimes via cable. The channel is also available online.[40] It can be streamed live worldwide for free through Livestation. A low quality RealVideo stream allows viewing. Al Jazeera news segments are frequently included on the American public television program Worldfocus. Al Jazeera can also be streamed on any iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch with a 3G or wifi conncection using a free application.

Online subscriptions allowing unlimited viewing may be purchased from Jump TV,[41] RealPlayer,[42] and VDC.[43] Headlines from Al-Jazeera English are available on Twitter.[44] According to the Al Jazeera English Watch Now webpage, not all services are available everywhere due to licensing/distribution restrictions.

The New York Times on 16 April 2007 reported that Al Jazeera English would begin running segments from its shows on the Internet video-sharing site YouTube.[45][46]

Al Jazeera English is available in the UK and Ireland on Freeview (channel 89), Sky's digital satellite platform on channel 514, and on Freesat, channel 203.

On 26 November 2009, the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission approved "a request to add Al Jazeera English (AJE) to the lists of eligible satellite services for distribution on a digital basis and amends the lists of eligible satellite services accordingly."[16][17] Al Jazeera English became available on Rogers Cable, Videotron and Bell TV on 4 May 2010.[27]

In New Zealand, Triangle TV re-broadcasts various Al Jazeera programmes in Auckland on free-to-air UHF channels as does Stratos free-to-air via Freeview satellite.

In April 2010, Al Jazeera English was taken off air in mio TV Singapore with unspecified reasons, according to the official Al Jazeera English website.

The channel initially began test streaming Al Jazeera English (then called "Al Jazeera International") in March 2006 on Hot Bird, Astra 1E, Hispasat, AsiaSat3S, Eurobird 1 and Panamsat PAS 10. Telenors Thor, Türksat and Eurobird 2 were added to the satellites carrying it. Eurobird 1 carried the test stream on frequency 11.681 under the name "AJI".

On 7 December 2010, Al Jazeera said its English language service has got a downlink license to broadcast in India. Satellite and cable companies would therefore be allowed to broadcast Al Jazeera in the country.[47] The channel will be launched soon on Dish TV, and is considering a Hindi-language channel.[48]

United States

AlJazeeraEgypt.png

Al Jazeera English is available via satellite across all of North America free to air via GlobeCast World TV on Galaxy 19 on the Ku band in DVB format. As of 2011, only a small number of Americans were able to watch the channel on their televisions.[49] Among the markets where it was available was were Bristol County, Rhode Island; Toledo and Sandusky, Ohio; Burlington, Vermont; Houston, Texas; and Washington, DC.[50] Industry giant Comcast originally planned to carry Al Jazeera English in 2007, but reversed its decision shortly before the channel's launch, citing "the already-saturated television market".[51] The two major American satellite providers, DirecTV and Dish Network, had similar plans but also changed their minds, with speculation that the decision may have been influenced by allegations by the Bush administration of "anti-American bias" in the channel.[52]

With Al Jazeera's coverage of the 2011 Egyptian Revolution, the channel drew acclaim and received renewed attention. The New York Times reported on 1 February 2011 that 1.6 million U.S. viewers had tuned in via Internet stream, and stated that new discussions were underway with carriers;[53] the following month, it was announced that Al Jazeera entered carriage negotiations with Comcast and Time Warner Cable.[54] Salon.com described the channel's English-language coverage as "mandatory viewing for anyone interested in the world-changing events currently happening in Egypt",[55] while Huffington Post contributor Jeff Jarvis claimed it was "un-American" for operators to not carry the network.[56] When Al Jazeera covered the 2011 Libyan civil war, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton noted an increasing American audience for the network, saying that "viewership of Al Jazeera is going up in the United States because it’s real news. You may not agree with it, but you feel like you’re getting real news around the clock instead of a million commercials and—you know—arguments between talking heads and the kind of stuff that we do on our news which—you know—is not particularly informative to us, let alone foreigners."[57]

On 1 February 2011, Internet appliance Roku posted on its Facebook page that the English-Language Al Jazeera Live would be streaming on Roku devices through a private channel called Newscaster and also through the BBC channel. It permitted the announcement following an unrest in Egypt so American viewers can watch the latest events going on in the middle east. A Roku user must add the private channel Newscaster by going to https://owner.roku.com/Add/newscaster. Roku is used to stream Netflix and Hulu content as well as many other private channels.

On Monday, 1 August 2011, Al Jazeera English began airing 23 hours a day in New York City as part of a sublet agreement with cable channel RISE, a former Spanish-language network. The network airs on Time Warner Cable on channel 92 and on Verizon FiOS on channel 466.[58]

Criticism

Anti-American bias

Emmy award winning journalist Dave Marash, who served as a veteran correspondent for ABC's Nightline, resigned from his position as Washington anchor for Al Jazeera English in 2008. Marash cited "reflexive adversarial editorial stance" against Americans and "anti-American bias".[59][60] On February 14, 2011 however, Dave Marash defended Al Jazeera English on the O'Reilly Factor on Fox News.[61]

In 2004, Accuracy in Media, a conservative non-profit[62][63][64] American media watchdog group, also criticized Al Jazeera for its "anti-American" stance.[65]
