Livestation , the destination for live TV over broadband, already has a number of Arabic news channels in its line up including BBC Arabic , Rusya al-Yaum , France 24 Arabic and Euronews Arabic .

Al Jazeera Arabic is a 24-hour satellite news channel serving more than 40 million viewers in the Middle East and around the world.

Now it can be received anywhere in the world except the USA by anyone with a broadband connection.

Matteo Berlucchi, Livestation’s CEO, said Al Jazeera Arabic is an important addition to Livestation’s channel line up.

“We are delighted to welcome Al Jazeera Arabic to Livestation. Recent feedback from our users confirms a strong demand for Arabic news channels. We are also looking forward to working closely with Al Jazeera Arabic to utilise our interactive tools. ” he said.

Al Jazeera English, which was one of the first channels to stream on Livestation, has been pioneering many of the interactive features available through the Livestation service. The live, instant chat is being used by the Riz Khan show to feed comments through to the studio to be used live, on air. Riz Khan says interactivity is key.

“We are finding more and more people want to take part by getting questions or comments to the guests that they see. Livestation is a perfect platform for this, it’s simple to use and allows our viewers to have an instant impact on what is being said by the guests.” he said.

Matteo Berlucchi says the live involvement of the audience is creating a new dynamic in broadcasting. He said it’s all part of Livestation’s ‘Be There Now’ offering, which is starting to influence a change in viewer behaviour.

“It’s all about taking the audience to a place they have never been and enabling them to play a part in how programmes are produced and presented”.

Livestation is available online at or through its award winning desktop player.
