Al Jazeera English (AJE) has launched a software application that will enable viewers across the world to access its channel live on Apple iPhones and iPods.
Dubbed AJE Live, the application provides unlimited viewing of the channel on both Wi-Fi and 3G networks.
The application, which was developed with online TV specialist Livestation, is being sold to consumers at an introductory price of $2.99 at Apple App Stores.
Phil Lawrie, director of Global Distribution at Al Jazeera Network stated that AJE Live will be “the station at the fore of the digital revolution”.
“The Web 2.0 generation is online 24/7 and demands to be constantly updated on global news as it happens. AJE Live is now part of the iPhone apps phenomenon, and is giving users instant access to an exciting brand of journalism when they want it, where they want it,” he stated.
