Al-Jazeera America debuts as newest news network

Associated Press
Published:
NEW YORK -- Al-Jazeera America has entered the cable-news fray long dominated by CNN, MSNBC and Fox News Channel.
The Qatar-based news organization launched its U.S. network at 3 p.m. Eastern time with a one-hour preview before settling into a regular schedule. It replaces Al Gore's Current TV in more than 45 million TV homes.
At the same time, the Al-Jazeera English network was suspended. It had been available since 2006 online and in a smattering of cable systems.
Al-Jazeera announced this new American channel in January, claiming an instant foothold with the purchase of Current TV and that network's cable distribution. Al-Jazeera America is also available from satellite providers DirecTV and Dish Network.
Al-Jazeera America is headquartered in New York and vows to provide unbiased, in-depth domestic and global news.
Al-Jazeera America is on Comcast channel 125.
