Al Jazeera English today announced the launch of its YouTube Channel. Content will include segments from its top shows such as Frost Over The World, Everywoman, and Inside Iraq.
Al Jazeera is also releasing web-only programs, starting with Political Bytes. The program is a global conversation hosted by its UN correspondent Mark Seddon.
“We believe that YouTube is a perfect platform to reach out to our audience and to give wide and easy access to new viewers around the world. We have significantly built on our distribution since launch and now reach well in access of 90 million cable and satellite households worldwide. With YouTube’s community of millions of online users this is set to dramatically increase,” said Nigel Parsons, Managing Director of Al Jazeera English
