Al Jazeera English is to start broadcasting in India where it has just been granted a licence to operate. This potentially gives Al Jazeera the opportunity to broadcast to 115 million households in the world’s second most populous country, increasing Al Jazeera English’s global audience by nearly 50%.

An excellent article on this subject notes that when ALE launched in 2006 they asked to operate in India but were refused by the Indian Home Ministry citing ‘security considerations’.
