Al Jazeera, Russia Today the Telegraph Media Group and VICE are amongst the leading global media companies to have recently launched dedicated channels on Dailymotion, the world’s second largest video portal.
Al Jazeera’s English and Arabic live news channels have now launched on Dailymotion. Under the deal, Dailymotion will live stream the two news channels. Al Jazeera will also upload highlighted video news clips daily from both channels that will be available on demand to Dailymotion users.
The partnership with Al Jazeera adds to the stable of world-leading news content available on Dailymotion including CNN International, Bloomberg and France24.
“Foreign Correspondents: How They See Us,” is the first project of several Dailymotion plans to co-produce with youth media company VICE (www.vice.com). Over five episodes, “Foreign Correspondents” follows international journalists from Hong Kong, France, the Middle East, Australia and Italy as they grapple with the turbulent, boisterous hustle of the recent US Presidential Election campaign.
Thousands of videos and news bulletins from Russia Today, the first Russian 24/7 English-language news channel that brings the Russian view on global news, and the Telegraph Media Group, home of the Daily and Sunday Telegraph, will also be uploaded to Dailymotion over the coming months.
Harriet Fuest, UK Content Manager at Dailymotion, said: “Dailymotion is really proud to be a distribution platform for some of the world’s leading media. The demand for live news coverage and news videos on demand has grown dramatically over the last 24 months as people have sought independent and up-to-the-minute news on era-defining global events such as the Arab Spring, the election in the US and the growth of China. Dailymotion users can now access an even wider range of news highlights on demand that is complemented by a live stream, ensuring that they can get all their breaking global news on just one site.”
