Ans: Dear Ahmed, the Qatar satellite TV station Al-Jazeera last week became a timely addition to the portfolio of channels offered by Australian pay-TV provider Optus Television. An Optus spokes-woman told AAP the channel, owned by the Qatar Government and a key broadcaster in the Arabic world, went live on Optus cable on October 1. Butshe denied the channel’s introduction was opportunistic in light of its key involvement in the current outbreak of terrorist-inspired warfare. “We began negotiating to carry the channel more than six months ago,” she said. Direct-to-home satellite services broadcast throughout the Asia Pacific region also began carrying the full al-Jazeera channel last week.
