Euronews is to launch a Turkish-language version in January next year. Euronews is linking with Turkish Radio Television (TRT) and TRT will be a shareholder in the channel.

Euronews’ Turkish-language version is the ninth version on air over greater Europe. From the launch date, the news channel will be available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, on Euronews' satellite network all over the world to more than 253m households in 142 countries. Euronews will commercialize the new version to Turkish-speaking people around the world, particularly in neighbouring countries of Turkey: North of Cyprus, Caucasus and Central Asia, and also to Turkish communities in Europe especially in Germany.

In addition, Euronews in Turkish will be distributed all over Turkey by TRT to be available on all distribution networks: analogue and digital terrestrial network, cable, satellite, IPTV, mobile etc. TRT will make Euronews available to 100% of TV households which represents more than 17m Turkish homes.
