Al Jazeera Arabic is amongst the first news outlets available on the 4th generation Apple TV, providing the latest global news and programmes live and on demand.
The channel will add a new revolutionary experience to the living room through the app which has been specifically built for a better viewing experience.
Al Jazeera Arabic on Apple TV follows the successful rolling out by Al Jazeera Media Network of Al Jazeera English and AJ+ on Apple TV which will give viewers the opportunity to watch a variety of content from different channels both in English and Arabic.
Users will be able to save videos for later viewing, access all saved content from the Watch List, have 24-hour access to Al Jazeera’s live video stream and follow a full schedule to see what’s coming up later in the day.
“The Al Jazeera Arabic app for Apple TV provides a compelling experience for our loyal viewers and is the most recent addition to our growing portfolio of digital products,” said Ibrahim Hamid, Director of Enterprise and Digital Platforms, Al Jazeera Media Network.
Abdullah Al Najjar, Al Jazeera Media Network’s Executive Director of Global Brand and Communications said: “The launch of the Al Jazeera Arabic app on Apple TV furthers our mission of making our content accessible over multiple devices in alignment with our digital distribution strategy. We are already available on Samsung & LG Smart TV, the XBOX one Game Console and a number of other devices. We will continue to strive to put our audiences first and provide access for them wherever they are on every platform available.
Whether you are looking for a two minute clip on the latest developments in Jerusalem, a full documentary on India’s interests in Africa, or a moving debate on the future of Syria, we want you to be able to find it easily on the device of your choice. Apple TV is another platform which will bring our award winning content to everyone interested in global affairs, anywhere in the world at the touch of a button”.
On a daily basis, millions of people access the latest news, analysis and documentary films on the channel’s social media platforms and aljazeera.net.
This move comes as part of the network's commitment to digital products, and the recent establishment of the Digital Division will ensure that Al Jazeera is positioned as a leader in this field
Al Jazeera Media strives to deliver content that captivates, informs, inspires and entertains.
Launched in 1996, Al Jazeera was the first independent news channel in the Arab world dedicated to providing comprehensive news and live debate. It challenged established narratives and gave a global audience an alternative voice - one that put the human being back at the centre of the news agenda - quickly making it one of the world’s most influential news networks. Since then the network has added new channels and services, with more than 70 bureaus around the world and a reach into 305 million homes worldwide.
