Michael Peters, CEO of euronews, Lucian Sârb, editorial director and Attila Kert, head of the euronews Hungarian service, have officially inaugurated the news channel's new office in Budapest.

The newsroom in Hungary offers 24-hour world news in Hungarian on all platforms: TV, Web with, and the channel's free mobile applications.

The 13th language service is produced locally in Budapest and is a central part of euronews' innovative 'Glocal' strategy to reinforce its presence in key countries and regions, in Europe and worldwide.

"As a result, today I'm pleased to announce that six months after our launch, major operators in Hungary offer euronews Hungarian to nearly one million homes. Each month, 350,000 Internet users connect to the Hungarian website to get all the latest important information on world affairs, which is already an incredible achievement for a newcomer to this market," Peters commented.

The euronews Hungarian news service is produced by a team of 30 media professionals, including 20 Hungarian journalists, 23 of whom are based in Budapest and the rest located at euronews Brussels and at its HQ in Lyon.

euronews is available in Hungarian on all major platforms: cable, satellite, IPTV through UPC and Magyar Telekom. Through MinDIG TV (Antenna Hungária), euronews Hungarian is the only international news channel to be broadcast on the DTT network.

The channels' output is fed to euronews HQ in Lyon for distribution on its international satellite network.
