The worldwide launch of Al Jazeera English (AJE) on November 15, 2006 was the largest international television launch in history.

Drawing on the legacy of the groundbreaking Al Jazeera Arabic channel, the 24-hour news and current affairs channel is the first international English-language news channel to be broadcast across the globe from the Middle East.

Al Jazeera English's global footprint continues to grow, and the channel now broadcasts to more than 180 million households on 6 continents in more than 100 countries.

Al Jazeera English is broadcast from four strategic centers: Doha, Qatar; Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; London, England and Washington, DC. Additionally, Al Jazeera Network maintains 69 bureaus across the world.

Unlike other international channels, the Al Jazeera English broadcast shifts as the world turns, providing the most comprehensive and contextual news coverage. Al Jazeera English’s mission is to provide independent, impartial news for a global audience and to offer a voice to a diversity of perspectives from under-reported regions.

Historically, the flow of information has run from North to South, from rich countries to poor. Al Jazeera English (AJE) aims to balance the information flow between the South and the North. The channel of reference for the Middle East and Africa, Al Jazeera English has unique access to some of the worlds most troubled and controversial locations.

Al Jazeera English’s determination and ability to accurately reflect the truth on the ground in regions torn by conflict and poverty has set our content apart. The channel has already won a number of prestigious international awards, which you can view here.
