Bye Bye Beeb

You know the BBC is badly biased against Israel when..

BBC World has been dropped by Israel’s satellite provider Yes TV in favour of the newly launched al-Jazeera English.

 

It is the first major distribution blow the corporation’s international news channel has suffered since al-Jazeera’s English-language service began broadcasting last month.

 

Although BBC World will still be available in Israel via cable, it will lose around 50% of its audience in the country as a result of being dropped by Yes.

 

Al-Jazeera English signed the carriage deal with Yes last month, but the damaging consequences for BBC World have only just emerged.

 

One BBC executive said: “We are disappointed but hopefully they will come back to the negotiations.”

 

The deal with Yes takes al-Jazeera English’s global reach to around 80m households.
