YouTube Deepens Commercial Relationship With Al Jazeera

Al Jazeera signed a commercial agreement with Google last week to share advertising revenue on their YouTube channel. The channel originally launched in April 2007.

This comes even as U.S. cable operators continue to shun the 24 hour news service – only Toledo, Ohio based Buckeye CableSystem and the municipal cable suppler in Burlington, Vermont offer the channel to viewers.

Al Jazeera uploads all original programming and unique news to the channel. An arabic channel is also available here. If you live in the U.S. and Al Jazeera is your flavor of news, You Tube (or satellite) is the only easy way to see their content.
