Al Jazeera, Google TV, and Xtreme Labs Team up to Deliver Your News

December 19, 2011 Pivotal Labs

Over the past year Al Jazeera has become a household name due to their extensive coverage of the Arab Awakening. Earlier this year, Al Jazeera was best positioned to cover the fast changing situations in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya and other Arab states during the Arab Awakening. Their 24/7 coverage of the action made them the go-to source for breaking news.

The recent publicity around the already well-established company has led to a demand for Al-Jazeera’s content to become more widely available. While there is always the option to stream Al Jazeera to your computer, isn’t bigger always better?

Al Jazeera’s collaboration with Xtreme Labs is taking their content to the big screen with a Google TV app. Now, Al Jazeera’s Google TV application brings the rich media and editorial content of Al Jazeera to your fingertips through Google TV and your home television set. The application allows you to browse and stream Al Jazeera’s on demand, award winning programs and news bulletins.

The application is Twitter-integrated to alert users to breaking stories happening around the world. You can also follow them on Twitter using their handle @AJELive.

Despite government attempts in several developing countries to close down Al Jazeera’s offices in areas of conflict, they are dedicated to delivering content to their users. Don’t miss out on what’s happening in the world around you, download AlJazeera for Google TV from the Android market now!

For Xtreme Labs, the development of this application has not only created a dynamic relationship with Al Jazeera, but also with Google TV. This new connected TV platform is in its early stages of adoption, and Xtreme Labs alongside Al Jazeera are proud to be early providers of content.
