Al-Jazeera Live Streaming on the Web

.
From its inception until its current limelight, watching Al-Jazeera is essential to following global social, political, and religious developments in the world today. Sponsored by the ruler of Qatar, Al-Jazeera began as a satellite station that focused on developments in the Middle East. From that starting point, it has grown by leaps and bounds to provide a truly international and global news network rivalling CNN. Today, Al-Jazeera covers news and analysis from Africa to Asia, from the United States to China. U.S. viewers can watch Al-Jazeera live on the web.
