Al Jazeera America Starts On Time Warner Cable Lineup Today

Qatar-backed cable-news outlet and cable distributor commence terms of deal struck in October

Al Jazeera America, the infant cable-news network armed with grand ambitions and lots of money from the Qatar government, debuts today on Time Warner Cable, a crucial step for the fledgling outfit, which will now gain more presence in important markets such as New York City and Los Angeles.

The agreement was unveiled in October. By notching distribution on Time Warner Cable – as well as Bright House Networks, which take advantage of Time Warner Cable programming pacts – Al Jazeera America expects to be available in almost 55 million homes.

Al Jazeera launched August 20.

The network ” remains committed to providing in-depth, unbiased journalism,” said   Ehab Al Shihabi, Al Jazeera America’s interim CEO, in a prepared statement, “and we’re excited to work with Time Warner Cable to make our channel available to their customers.”

Time Warner Cable is expected to make the network available to digital basic subscribers.
