How to watch Al Jazeera from around the World

Satellite TV and Other Low-Tech Solutions Remain Key to Communications and Media in Egypt

Egyptians get most of their news from TV, rather than the Internet or newspapers, so when the local government scrambled the satellite TV signal earlier this week for the region’s dominant independent news channel, Al Jazeera, the Qatar-based network found a way to subvert that censorship: it used a tactic of frequency-switching to continue to reach its viewers.

That wasn’t not the only trick Al Jazeera had up its sleeve, either. It also aired the new frequencies where people could tune their receivers in order to watch the network, in Egypt and beyond, as well as the names of competitor channels where viewers could watch Al Jazeera broadcasts. Viewers with clear Al Jazeera signals elsewhere in the Middle East or beyond passed the new frequency data via word-of-mouth and other means.
