About Al Jazeera Media Network
Launched in 1996, Al Jazeera was the first independent news channel in the Arab world, dedicated to providing comprehensive news and live debate. It challenged established narratives and gave a global audience an alternative voice, one that put the human being back at the centre of the news agenda, quickly making it one of the world’s most influential news networks.
Since then, it has added new channels and services while maintaining the independent and pioneering spirit that defined its character. Each subsidiary follows the same principles, values that inspire it to be challenging and bold, and provide a ‘voice for the voiceless’ in some of the most underreported places on the planet.
From its headquarters in the Middle East, to the broadcast centres and more than 70 bureaus around the world, Al Jazeera strive to deliver content that captivates, informs, inspires and engages.
I am delighted with this partnership agreement with Techlive International. By providing Al Jazeera News Channels to hospitals and hotel guests via Techlive, we will be able to reach out and serve an additional and diverse genre of audiences.
