Indian TV viewers can now watch the award winning international news channel Al Jazeera English, after it was wished success for launch on 17 November by the Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

During a meeting with Al Anstey, managing director, Al Jazeera English, and India bureau chief Anmol Saxena, the Prime Minister said: "Al Jazeera is gaining quite a reputation worldwide. I wish them success for their launch in India."

Now available on Dish TV - India's largest direct to home (DTH) satellite platform in terms of subscriber numbers the Qatar-based news channel will be available to 11.7 million households subscribing to Dish TV's family pack, on channel 618. The DTH provider now boasts over 330 channels.

"We are delighted to be launching on Dish TV today," said Al Anstey. "India is an emerging leader in today's globalised world, and a critical country for Al Jazeera English to broadcast across. We are confident that our coverage will be of enormous interest and value to audiences across India.

"Through our vast network of reporters worldwide, we provide eye-witness reports from all corners of the globe. We are uniquely placed to deliver honest and in-depth coverage."

Al Jazeera English, which launched in 2006, now has over 70 bureaux around the world including one in New Delhi. It was granted a licence to broadcast in India in December 2010. The channel currently broadcasts to over 250 million households across 130 countries.

"In yet another first for Dish TV, we are proud to have Al Jazeera channel on our platform. Al Jazeera's launch on our platform will keep our family of 11.7 million subscribers connected and updated with latest in current affairs, issues and happenings across the globe," said Jawahar Goel, managing director, Dish TV.

"Dish TV has been a trend setter in offering its viewers the best content, service and quality and we will continue to bring the best of the content for our valued subscribers."
