Independent (UK) Now Carries Al Jazeera English

The Independent(UK), January 15, 2009 - The Independent has announced a new online partnership with Al Jazeera English for news bulletins from the broadcaster to appear daily on the Independent website. [Today's news bulletin can be seen here.]

The deal, a UK exclusive, means that Al Jazeera English channel's video news bulletins, presented from the channel's broadcast centres in Doha, Kuala Lumpur, London and Washington will be regularly uploaded on to the Independent site. The content is tailored to web users providing short, punchy news round-ups of 2-3 minutes duration and will be refreshed throughout the day.

Al Jazeera English now broadcasts to over 130 million homes worldwide with an editorial mission to give a "voice to the voiceless", reporting stories that often go unreported from regions across the globe. As the first global English-speaking news channel based in the Middle East, Al Jazeera English's unparalleled access to ongoing events inside Gaza has delivered exclusive pictures and in-depth perspectives to worldwide audiences more familiar with western television news networks....
