Al Jazeera on Freeview

Al Jazeera English, the Qatar-based news channel, will double its availability in UK homes by launching on Freeview today. The service launched on Sky's pay-TV service in late 2006 and went free to air on the Freesat digital satellite service in May 2008.
"This is a breakthrough for us; it will give us substantial reach to more than 80 per cent of homes in the UK," said Al Anstey, director of media development for the al-Jazeera Network.
