Al Jazeera English Expands Digital Access In U.S.

By Mark Joyella 

Al Jazeera announced Wednesday it had resumed U.S. access to the network’s Al Jazeera English service, by providing free streaming on and other streaming services.

“We are delighted to bring this independent and thought-provoking content to the U.S. market,” said Giles Trendle, acting managing director of Al Jazeera English.

“Al Jazeera’s mission is to provide an unfiltered perspective on the most important events happening around the world,” said Mustafa Souag, Al Jazeera’s acting director general. Unlike the huge infrastructure that was built up to bring Al Jazeera America into daily production before it ended operations in April, Al Jazeera English can stream in the U.S. far more easily.


“Al Jazeera English, like all Al Jazeera Media Network news platforms,is wholeheartedly committed to the digital revolution of media and bringing our pioneering journalism to people wherever they are and whenever they want it.”
