Al Jazeera English is an international news channel, with over 70 bureaus around the world spanning six continents. Since its inception in 2006, it has continued to grow in reach and popularity due to its global coverage, especially from underreported regions. The channel currently broadcasts to over 250 million households across 130 countries, a number that is expected to grow as the channel expands throughout India.

The international news provider has operated a bureau in New Delhi since its establishment five years ago. The bureau is headed by its Bureau Chief Anmol Saxena. Al Jazeera has produced a showreel of its highlights since 2006 for its India launch. Take a look:

The DTH market has been one of significance with broadcasters. According to Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI), the first three months of 2011 saw a climb in the number of DTH subscribers registered with private service providers by 3.51 million to 35.56 million, making it a promising platform for international news broadcasters such as Al Jazeera English.
