Al Jazeera for India

Al Jazeera English has confirmed that the channel has been granted a downlinking licence to broadcast in India. The decision, which was made by Indias Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, allows cable and satellite companies in India to add Al Jazeera English to their current line-up of channels.

The announcement from the Indian Government follows a formal application process by Al Jazeera English, which was initiated in 2006. Cable and satellite platforms will now be able to begin distributing the channel immediately, and Al Jazeera has already received indication from a number of providers that they will air the channel.

This is an exciting breakthrough that has been in the works for several years, and we are extremely pleased that Al Jazeera Englishs groundbreaking news and programming will soon be available in India, said Al Anstey, Managing Director of Al Jazeera English. We know there is a great demand for our award-winning content. Through our dedicated resources in India, Al Jazeera is already presenting important stories from India to our global audience in more than 100 countries. We are delighted that we now have the opportunity to present viewers in India with Al Jazeera Englishs in-depth coverage and rich context of todays most important global events.

Al Jazeera English currently has a bureau in New Delhi which has covered major stories of international significance including The Mumbai Siege, The General Elections, The Commonwealth Games, the impact of the global Recession on India, and President Barack Obamas visit to India. Additionally, Al Jazeeras reporting from India follows the Networks goals of presenting important stories that are too often overlooked by other mainstream media outlets.
