It is a World channel broadcasting news and thousands of hours of factual programming.

This includes detailed news and current affairs, features and analysis, documentaries, current affairs, entertainment and sport.

Al Jazeera International pursues no domestic agenda. Over 24 hours a day it broadcasts live from four broadcast centres around the world – from Doha, Kuala Lumpur, London and Washington DC.

Each broadcast centre ‘carries’ the network for several hours a day and takes its editorial control from that location.

Dozens of bureaux around the world complement the broadcast centre coverage and ensure a truly global perspective.
