Al Jazeera English Launches In New York City

At midnight, Al Jazeera English launched in New York City on Time Warner Cable, a major step in the network’s goal of expanding further into the U.S. cable market and a chance to reach two million households in a world capital of culture and commerce. The network will also launch on Verizon FiOS in the coming days.

In New York City, Time Warner customers will be able to watch AJE on one of the Regional News Network’s two channels (92) for 23 hours out of the day. While that RNN channel switches to an hour of local programming in the afternoon, AJE will shift to its other channel (91).
