US-based news junkies can once again access reports produced by Quatar-based Al Jazeera English online after the network stopped blocking access to its YouTube videos from within the US Tuesday. Al Jazeera started to lock out U.S. viewers from its online videos when it launched its new cable channel Al Jazeera America back in August due to contractual obligations. Its contracts with cable operators also forced the network to block its live stream in the US, which remained inaccessible Tuesday. It’s unclear what exactly changed with regards to its YouTube videos, but Al Jazeera English staff celebrated the move online:
Al Jazeera America can’t be watched on Time Warner Cable, AT&T Uverse or online – but the network’s corporate parent seems to be readying a new online offering.
Al Jazeera started blocking U.S. visitors from accessing its news videos on YouTube this week. In light of the clashes in Cairo, timing couldn’t be worse.
