Libya Al Hurra TV announced today that its logo has appeared on Arabsat frequency 10730 H and 10782 V on Nilesat. Promotion will begin shortly followed by official broadcasting.
Libya Al Hurra TV until now was an internet television channel founded by the late Mohammed Nabbous on 17 February 2011 at the start of the Libyan civil war. It was the only TV broadcast from Benghazi when Gaddafi shut down internet lines as the war began. Al Hurra was able to bypass government blocks on the internet in order to broadcast live images from Benghazi across the world.
